Digital art installation in Nanjing helps the public keep an eye on exoplanets

A permanent public art sculpture allows the public to observe the galaxy's exoplanets – which human life could potentially exist on.

Data Gate is the brainchild of creative media studio, Ouchhh, and is comprised of 360 LED installations.

Commissioned by the Chinese Government and located in Nanjing, the installation utilises NASA's Kepler data sets to create AI-driven content.

Weighing 15 tons, the sculpture was created in collaboration with Dawn Gelino, an astrophysicist at NASA Exoplanet Science Institute, California, US.

Ouchhh's motivation behind the installation was to make the Kepler Telescope – launched by NASA in 2009 to discover Earth-size planets orbiting other stars – memorable.

"Our aim for this artwork is for it to be considered as a gateway between our planet and other habitable planets around the universe," Ouchhh said.

"We visualised and stylised the findings of these Neural Networks for identifying exoplanets using the dimming of the flux.

"The resulting work will invite visitors to plunge into the fascinating world of space discovery through immersive data sculpture.

"The installation offers a poetic sensory experience and is meant to become a monument of mankind’s contemplative curiosity and profound need for exploration.

"As NASA said, if the legendary Hubble Telescope revolutionised our knowledge of our Universe, Kepler revolutionized our knowledge of the exoplanets in our galaxy. It has expanded our visions and dreams."

Ouchhh has a main office in Istanbul, and partnerships in LA, Vienna, Barcelona, Paris, London, and Berlin.

The multidisciplinary creative hub specialises in interactive new media platforms, data paintings, AI, data-driven sculptures, kinetic public arts and immersive experiences.
