A few week’s ago, I and Onur proposed some projects to our class. And one of them was building an virtual aquarium. Someone has accomplished exactly what was in our head.

(You can see the aquarium example at 1.33)

This is good example how typography, architecture and art meets together. The light cubic structure is a shelter especially for reading in a sunny day in an open area. Tiny holes projects (with the help of lighting) its poem to interior space.  The projected lines seem to be stable (drilled to the plank ) but what happens if the holes on then plank work like a digital screen (each dot is a led). The holes opens and closes according to script and the text changes.
