“Cloud” a Digital Sculpture in Heathrow Terminal 5.

A digital sculpture for British Airways Heathrow Terminal 5, whose surface is covered with flip-dots that can be individually addressed by a computer to animate the entire skin of the sculpture.

Created by Troika, an art and design studio in London, “Cloud” is a digital sculpture housed at the luxury lounges in Heathrow Terminal 5. It’s a smooth-shaped object suspended in the air, covered with 4638 “flip dots” - motorized metal patches that change orientation to produce various patterns.

The sculpture is located in Terminal 5 in the atrium hall which leads to the British Airways First Class Lounges. The brief from British Airways was open and simple: to create a signature piece that will mark the entrance of the First Class Lounges and signify the transition between the busy shopping floor and the calm and serenity of the lounges.
