 C an a building feel and express?  The North Carolina and Florida-based multi-media artist Ivan Toth Depeña believes it can.  With a recent installation of sound sensitive LED lights wired for real time reaction, the University of New Mexico’s WisePise Arena will be able to express the live excitement in light and project that in the glass circulation towers on the outside of the building.  The system records the crowd reaction and assigns each glass pane a different color, intensity and duration of light visible on the inside and out.

“The project is inspired by the idea that architecture can be a living, breathing organism that can come alive by the energy of the building’s end users.” says Ivan Toth Depeña.

The building does not only transmit energy from the inside but reacts to the outside environment as well. The lights adjust and react to the changing daily sunset and environmental conditions.

Inside/Out, the permanent, interactive, light installation will open with the new University school year in September 2015.
