There have been several projects around the world that have turned a building into a matrix display. Theses include:
Lets try to do something similar, but unique in Edinburgh!
Former home of Veterinary School of the University of Edinburgh. Potential new home of Hacklab, fingers crossed!
Status: The window of opportunity in Jan-Feb 2012 didn't come to anything. No longer and option as it's techcu.be now.
6 story tower block. Excluding the ground floor that has a porchway etc, there are 5 floors each with 10 equal sized windows.
Don't know the exact window measurements.
Tracing Paper to put in inside of windows. Will need lots, ~75m something like 4 rolls of this 90gsm stuff, exact width and quantity to be determined by window measurements. Could we use whitewash instead? Messy/time-consuming to apply and remove? Prototyping required I imagine.
2 windows have fans/extractor arrangements, how would these be dealt with? Probably leave them as they are?
Internet Connection: Probably need some form of Internet connection to building for submission of animations, doesn't need to be high bandwidth. Something like a 3G dongle in a laptop?
