Robotic mirrors follow the sun like sunflowers in installation by Kimchi and Chips

The installation, called Halo, by Seoul-based art studio Kimchi and Chips features 99 robotic mirrors that move continuously throughout the day, following the sun like sunflowers.

Halo was co-commissioned by Arts Council England and Arts Council Korea. It was originally shown as part of a month long public exhibition at Somerset House in London in June 2018 to coincide with the summer solstice.

Arranged across one 15-metre-long track and two five-metre-tall towers, the computationally-aligned mirrors beam sunlight into a cloud of water mist, creating a halo-like circle.
