Makerversity’s exceptionally talented members of Vaults 2 and 14 are infiltrating the Barbican. The UNSEEN, John Nussey, Sam Tripp, Searu and Alex Bygrave have all been involved in major works on show now at Digital Revolution.
The UNSEEN, with the help of Makerversity members John Nussey and Sam Tripp, builtAETHER, a sculpture responding to weather patterns in outer space. Linked to meteorological streams recording by satellites in Earths atmosphere, AETHER is a network of data that visualises the intangible aesthetic of cosmic storms, solar bursts, magnetic aurora and the solar eclipse.

These guys are all amazing, it’s all amazing. Go! Go! Go!
