This is Tetra. A 12 meter tall Brixels artwork we designed for a grand lobby. Each Brixel is almost half-a-meter wide with tapered edges. Tetra’s form is made up of tetrahedral segments designed to exude the feeling of rigidity and geometry, while its movements are anything but. The Brixels move together to create the appearance that the surface is made of a massive piece of flexible fabric, emulating a look of softness. . . #art #kineticart #brixels #kinetic #movingsculpture #artinstallation #lobby #architecture #sculpture #render #digitalart #interactiveart #interactive

We’ve been working on a variety of new multi-color finishes, as well as new interactive software, for several upcoming Flip-Discs editions. They really take on a whole new life, and we think you’ll really enjoy them. More soon... . . #art #kineticart #flipdisc #movingsculpture #newwork #newmediaart #newart #kinetic #digitalart #interactiveart #kineticwall

Excited to share that Brixels was selected as an @architizerawards winner for Architecture + Technology. Part of our efforts is to blur the lines between Art and Architecture. We’ll take this as a nod that we’re headed in the right direction. . . #artandarchitecture #art #architecture #technology #architizerawards

Another new piece! “Awaken 1” is on view now at @empirestoresdumbo in Brooklyn, along with a new Flip-Discs piece as well. This is the first Brixels installation to utilize backlights. The installation is an exploration of human interaction with a robotic medium. It acts as a canvas where one “draws” on it by moving their hand through the air. It will be on display for the next month or so. Make your way by! Special thanks to @misskellybee for helping us to show it off. . . #art #artinstallation #brixels #empirestores #dumbo #breakfastny #kinetic #kineticsculpture #movingsculpture #newart #sculpture #newmedia

Four years ago this week we shared Thread Screen with the world. 6,400 mechanical spools of thread that rotate through 36 colors to display images submitted by people around the world via a specific hashtag. It was the most complex piece we ever built, made of over 200,000 custom parts. A labor of love that we are still astonished we actually pulled off. . . #kineticart #kineticsculpture #thread #threadscreen #art #futureart #kinetic #almostkilledus #movingsculpture #artist

“Flip-Disc 4 in Gold,” is our first Flip-Discs artwork created at a smaller scale, making it more ideal for homes and galleries. We will be unveiling a limited run of pieces from this series in the coming days/weeks. More details soon. This video was shot while being exhibited at @christiesinc in June. . . #kineticsculpture #kineticart #kinetic #contemporaryart #modernart #newmedia #art #flipdisc #flipdiscs #movingart #movingsculpture #interactiveart

Excited to share the official footage of “Pool” from our @christiesinc exhibition. The piece mimics a surface of water, reacting appropriately as you move your hand over the surface, and reflecting light off the mirrored stainless steel and back up onto the ceiling. “Pool” utilizes our second generation Brixels, which have the ability to rotate with pinpoint accuracy to achieve incredibly subtle movements.

BREAKFAST turns 10 this week, and with it we’re officially announcing our transition from “company” to “art collective.” Today, we’re unveiling our new brand and website, and the next few weeks and months will be full of new pieces and announcements. It’s taken a big leap of faith to head in this direction we’ve spoken about for years, and it’s exciting to begin to see our vision come to life. Stay tuned for more to come... #newbeginnings #artist #artcollective

Brixel Drive is a new design we’ve been playing with which utilizes our new Surface-Mount Brixels. The surface-mount design allows us to mount the bricks in more complex patterns and opening up more options for different brick shapes. This design was inspired by the cobblestone roads we walk over regularly in Dumbo. . . #brixels #brixel #installationart #kinetic #kineticsculpture #publicart #design #freshdesign #innovativedesign #innovation #inspiration #art #artinspiration #movingsculpture #bricks #facadedesign #buildingfacade #newart #render #designspiration #dailyinspiration #motiongraphics #satisfyingvideos #satisfying

A peek at our Brixel Mirror installation from the #supersaturdaynight Foo Fighters show before doors opened. Amazing opportunity with an amazing band at an amazing venue – which, btw, was built from scratch in a parking lot just for this one night. 🤯 . . . #brixels #brixel #foofighters #interactiveart #kinetic #kineticart #installationart #movingsculpture #concert #rockandroll #contemporaryart #digitaldisplay #kineticdisplay #art

We strive to create functional art. Pieces that are both mesmerizing and useful. This early test of Brixels shows how they can act as a sculpture, fence, and a display all at the same time. . . #brixels #brixel #art #sculpture #kineticart #contemporaryart #movingsculpture #installationart #artinstallation #outdoorsculpture #sculpturepark #newart #digitalart #interactiveinstallation #superarchitects
