Holographic Type Sculpture with HoloLens

Recently, I visited Bellevue Arts Museum http://www.bellevuearts.org/ and conceived of a ‘Holographic art sculpture’ for installation in the museum’s beautiful atrium. Using my app Typography Insight for HoloLens, http://typeinsight.org/hololens.html, I created a ‘Holographic Type Sculpture’ and placed it in Bellevue Arts Museum’s atrium and rooftop sculpture garden (coincidentally, its name is ‘Court of Light’). You can experience the Mixed Reality Capture below.

Since each type is interactive, I can imagine the visitors moving or rotating them, collectively evolving the sculpture.(this shared experience is not implemented yet) I am very excited about the potential of HoloLens as a new medium for art installation.
