Wednesday search challenge (8/29/12): The mysterious sculpture

As you know by now, I travel a bit.  And sometimes, you get to see some pretty remarkable things.  

I was rushing through the airport the other day when this amazing sculpture caught my eye.  
video

I only had time to grab a few seconds of video with my camera, knowing that I could figure out everything else about it once I got home.  

Can you? 

Question:  Who is the maker of this remarkable sculpture?  What is its name?  And where is this hanging? 

Simple really.  Took me about 2 minutes to figure it out.  

How long will it take you?  

Remember to let us know HOW you searched for the answer... and tell us how long it took you to find the answers.  

Search on!

  1. Troika (a London-based art studio) created this sculpture called "Cloud" for the British Airways luxury terminal at Heathrow Airport.

    It took me about 2 minutes too. The first minute I spent trying to do a similar image search, but nothing came back.

    So I watched the video again, but this time closed my eyes to listen to the announcement in the background to get a clue. It was British Airways, so I took a quick guess at it being in Heathrow and typed in "Heathrow airport sculpture", and there were a couple video results up top that looked similar, one of which was labelled "Troika - Cloud, Kinetic Sculpture 2008" and led to the Troika webpage. (Tried again later with "british airways sculpture" and got the same results)

    Searched for [flipping mirror sculpture]
    Entered two first results, which were not what I wanted.

    It was the first one that appeared.
    On the video details there was everything I needed plus a link to even more info: http://troika.uk.com/cloud

  6. Good day Dan! Hope you enjoying your trips.

    I searched [airport sculptures changes color] on google images. The first one took me to:
    http://gizmodo.com/350482/digital-sculpture-at-heathrow-airport-demonstrates-that-every-cloud-has-a-silver-lining

    Question: Who is the maker of this remarkable sculpture? R= studio Troika

    What is its name? R= The Cloud

    And where is this hanging? R= Terminal 5 at Heathrow.

    Plus:
    From: http://troika.uk.com/cloud

    Cloud' was commissioned by Artwise Curators.

    The sculpture is located in Terminal 5 in the atrium hall that leads to the British Airways First Class Lounges.

    The project took 8 months in development, production and installation. We would like to thank British Airways and Artwise Curators for giving us the opportunity to create our most ambitious work to date, Mike Smith Studio for the manufacturing of the sculpture, Pharos Architectural Controls, and Alternative Access for the installation.

  7. The sculpture is "Cloud" by the British "Troika" sculpture design studio, hanging in Heathrow Airport. It took me about five minutes, because I couldn't get the description right. I couldn't tell if the circles were mirrors, disks, or lights, but finally, a Google Image search for "airport flipping disks hanging sculpture" got me the correct matching image as the first result. That site only got me the "Heathrow" element, but my next Google search for "heathrow hanging sculpture" led me to the Troika website.

  8. I first searched for "airport sculpture moving" but that didn't work so then tried "airport sculpture flip" and found the answer:
    Maker: Mike Smith Studio
    Name: Cloud
    Location: Hanging at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 in the atrium hall that leads to the British Airways First Class Lounges.
    About 3 minutes!

  9. Heathrow Terminal 5.

    Did an image search for Airport Terminal Sculpture Aluminium - 1 minute

  10. It's called "Cloud," by Troika, and it's in terminal 5 at the Heathrow airport.

    I searched "airport mirror sculpture," found a picture that identified the airport as Heathrow and terminal 5, searched Heathrow terminal 5 and found the name of the sculpture and the maker.

    It took ~1 minute.

  11. Hello;

    The make is a British design studio named TROIKA. My search time was three or four minutes.

    I searched for "mall sculpture flipping disks" through google image. which led me to the link http://piquantphotos.blogspot.com/2011/07/heathrow-views.html detailing the location of the sculpture. Then I searched "heathrow terminal 5 flipping disk sculpture" which led me to: http://www.fastcodesign.com/mba/1662503/sculpture-that-darts-and-shimmers-like-a-school-of-fish and a write up about TROIKA and listed the Heathrow sculpture as their work.

  12. This is 'Cloud' commissioned by Artwise Curators and manufactured by Mike Smith Studio. It is hanging in London's Heathrow Airport Terminal 5.

    It took me a bit under 5 minutes to find the information. I started by searching for "airport sculpture lights" which, after scanning the results didn't seem like the right way to go at it. I changed the search to "airport hanging electronic sculpture" and Cloud was the top result.

    Info here: http://troika.uk.com/cloud

  13. The Troika Cloud by the Troika Studio (http://troika.uk.com/cloud) ; situated in Heathrow Airport Terminal 5!

    I could make out some audio on the video; something like British Airways ... flight to Venice.

    So I tried searching for BA flights to Venice, in the hope of working out possible depature points. There were a few; including Heathrow. So I Googled airport sculpture Heathrow; and, scanned the images that came. The 3rd one took me to Troika.

  14. I think it took about five minutes, but I wasn't timing it. I went to image search and typed in "mirror" and "sculpture". That got me enough that I knew I was in the right direction. I added in "airport" and it popped right up. It is called Cloud. It was made by Conny Freyer, Eva Rucki and Sebastien Noel. It is hanging in the Heathrow Airport. This is the page I got the answers from: http://www.doobybrain.com/2008/01/24/cloud-digital-sculpture-for-british-airways-terminal/

  15. I searched google images until I found something similar.
    Tried:
    [airport sculpture circles] (10s)
    [airport sculpture discs] (10s)
    [airport sculpture flipping discs] (10s)

    That last one led me to: http://digitalexperience.cavi.dk/?cat=16&paged=7

    The sculpture is called "Cloud", made by a company called Troika, and on display at Heathrow Airport. Here's the Troika info page:

  16. Troika. Cloud. Heathrow Terminal 5. Did an image search on 'airport sculpture silver disks' (which Google corrected to discs for me), and it was the first result. The info for that image told me it was at Heathrow, and a subsequent web search on 'sculpture heathrow terminal 5' got me immediately to the Troika webiste about the sculpture. About 2 minutes (on a slow connection).

    There were several responses.

  18. Who is the maker - Troika (which is made up of Eva Rucki, Conny Freyer and Sebastien Noel)
    What is its name? Cloud
    Where is it hanging? Heathrow Terminal 5, London

    Took me about a minute. I googled "flipping mirrors sculpture airport". The first link was a youtube video of the piece which actually had everything I needed in the description. Troika.uk.com/cloud confirmed the location, name, and members of Troika.

    Easiest Search Research yet.

  19. Cloud (2008) at Heathrow Airport, Terminal 5 outside the British Airways lounge conceived by art and design studio Troika
    I searched for "kinetic sculpture airport" in Google images. It was on the 3rd or 4th page of results. Once I had the name and location of the sculpture, a regular Google search brought up an article about the sculpture on Gizmondo which had the name of the design studio. It probably took about 3 minutes.

  20. This is Cloud, a kinetic sculpture by Troika that hangs in Heathrow Airport.

    I started with a simple search of 'airport sculptures' and saw the word kinetic and immediately knew this fell into that category.

    So I reformulated the query and searched for 'airport kinetic sculptures'. I saw that it wasn't the popular rain sculpture in Singapore so I using both rain and singapore as negative terms and quickly found the page from Troika.

  22. I was having trouble finding it on Google Image using all sorts of straightforward queries like [ airport reflective disk sculpture ]. Considering the background looks more like a mall, I guessed Heathrow as the only airport/mall that came to mind. The sculpture comes up first under [ heathrow moving sculpture ], as CLOUD by Troika.

    Also seems to come up first on GI search of [ airport flipping disk sculpture ]. 10 minutes.

  23. Took me a few minutes.

    I tried turning the video into an image to see if there was anything similar. Nope.

    I searched [airport disco ball sculpture] and came across http://www.airport-parking-discounts.co.uk/blog/2011/10/top-10-weird-airport-decor-pieces

    It was designed by Troika in 2008. "The Cloud" is hanging up in Heathrow's Terminal 5.

  25. · TROIKA - Conny Freyer, Eva Rucki and Sebastien Noel
    · CLOUD - 2008
    · British Airways Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport

    knew you had been in the NL so checked the airport @ Schiphol for sculpture first with no luck. Then used this [mirror cloud OR snake sculpture in airport] & that led to the answers at the following site, then looked up Troika's site/info - about 5 minutes to find the answers, further reading and this response, +10 more - knowing the sculpture's location is a big advantage. In the video you can hear British Airways mentioned.
    "Simple really. Took me about 2 minutes to figure it out." a little condescending since you were there and get paid, in part, to do this routinely, but whatever floats your boat - it's your sandbox.

  29. “Cloud” by Troika London at the entrance of the new British Airways luxury lounges in Heathrow Airport Terminal 5. It took me less than 5 minutes, not sure exactly. The successful approach was searching Google Images for "airport sculpture kinetic" and visually scanning the results. Before that I tried a regular Google search with no luck.

  41. Troika - 'Cloud' - digital sculpture for British Airways

    I started by searching for "Flipping Mirror Sculpture Mall" because I had initially thought this was in a mall from the video. I found a similar piece of art in a Singapore Mall, so that at least led to me to the artist.

    Second search for "troika sculpture" and found a video of the item on youtube.

  44. The sculpture is called CLOUD, was designed by the London-based art studio TROIKA and manufactured in 2008 by Mike Smith Studio. It currently hangs in Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport in London.
    All total, took me about 15 minutes, with LOTS of trial and error.
    Tried screencapping from your video and putting into Google Image search. Added various combinations of descriptors. No luck.
    Tried same approach with picture from Lifehacker. After adding descriptors [airport sculpture], found that the sculpture was in Heathrow airport, which I knew is in London.
    Google Search for [heathrow hanging sculpture]. Found a lot of stuff about upcoming installation in Terminal 2, called “Slipstream,” not the one you’re asking about.
    Google Search for [heathrow hanging sculpture –slipstream]. Most promising result was troika.uk.com/cloud, which tells the rest of the story.

  51. It took me about 5 minutes to figure out that :
    a. The sculpture was in Terminal 5 of London Heathrow Airport.
    b. It was made by a group called "Troika", it's named "Cloud", commissioned by Artwise Curators, manufactured by Mike Smith Studio and installed by Pharos Architectural Controls and Alternative Access.

    What I did :
    1. Watch the video with sound on pretty loud : "Last call for ... departure to Venice ..." with British accent => UK
    2. search google images with query "heathrow airport moving sculpture" : got lucky on that one, first image looks very similar => http://blog.petaflop.de/2008/07/
    3. read the article and followed the link to Troika's site for additional info

  52. It took me about 5 minutes...I started with sculpture moving mirrors airport and found the Troika Cloud Kinetic Sculpture in a YouTube video. I then searched Troika Cloud Sculpture and found it hanging in Heathrow's Terminal 5. I discovered mirrors may not be an inherently accurate description of what the sculpture is made of, but it at least got me started in the right direction. Now I really hope I'm right!

  53. At first i made this harder than it had to be. I took a screen shot and tried to search the image. That only brought up your site.
    I then tried to listen to the background announcement and could only make out "British Airways" Both of those searches took about 1 minute in total.
    Finally I tried typing in airport sculpture silver mirror flip to black. All the top results were useful.
    - The sculpture is called "Cloud"
    - The artists that made it are "Conny Freyer, Eva Rucki and Sebastien Noel"
    - It is hanging in the British Airways Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport.

    In total the search took about 2-3 minutes

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's made by the art and design studio Troika and is simply called Cloud. It's at Terminal 5 in Heathrow airport.

    Took me about 5 minutes to work out as I didn't know which airport it was in so I had to search around looking for various airport sculptures. That proved fruitless but adding in "silver to black" to my search terms narrowed it down instantly to this post on Gizmodo: http://gizmodo.com/350482/digital-sculpture-at-heathrow-airport-demonstrates-that-every-cloud-has-a-silver-lining

    The link to the studio's website was right there at the bottom.

  55. Took me about 2 minutes. This is "Troika". Conny Freyer, Eva Rucki and Sebastien Noel have created this art installation for the British Airways Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport. Just searching google images for "airport sculpture" did the trick.

  63. HANGING: Suspended above the escalators at Terminal 5 at Heathrow

    NAME: Cloud is a five-meter digital sculpture consisting of three layers conceived by art and design studio Troika.

    SEE IT IN ACTION AT
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42hgPLL8IrA&feature=player_embedded#!

    An interesting piece "...On top of an aluminum body sit 4,638 dots that can turn from silver to black in one quick flick. Beneath that lies two electronic drivers, 134 distribution boards and over 16,500 feet of cable. Controlling the flip-dots was harder than normal, however, and Pharos Architectural Controls, a company which develops electronic controllers for lighting applications, had to fiddle around with the control parameters and rewrite firmware on the drivers."

    I also did an image search for airport sculptures and it took a couple of minutes to scan for the same image you posted.
