Decode - exhibition

Today a few of my university friends and one of our teachers went to the V&A to see the exhibition Decode and I cant remember the last time an exhibition excited me so much.

This is the link  to the exhibit http://www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/future_exhibs/Decode/

"The exhibition will explore three themes. Code as a Raw Material will present pieces that use computer code to create new designs in the same way a sculptor works with materials such as clay or wood. This section will look at how code can be programmed to create constantly fluid and ever changing objects.
The second theme, Interactivity, will look at designs where the viewer directly influences the work. Visitors will be invited to interact with and contribute to the development of the works, many of which show designers playing with the boundaries of design and performance.
The final theme, The Network, will focus on works that comment on and utilise the digital traces left behind by everyday communications, from blogs in social media communities to mobile communications or satellite tracked GPS systems."  Taken from the V&A website

This is Videogrid by Ross Phillips. This was just pure fun, almost exhibitionist fun.

Showing anything more would be too much of a spoiler.
