St. Louis Metro: Linear Accelerator

Client: Metro Transit St. Louis

Partners: Mid Ocean Studio

Tellart partnered with Mid Ocean Studio to create a large-scale interactive lighting sculpture for a station in the St. Louis Metro. Mid Ocean designed and built the double helix of stainless steel that held Tellart’s custom technology – thousands of wirelessly controllable multi-color light nodes. Cameras positioned above the train platform tracked the waiting passengers’ movements and wirelessly transmitted that data to the lights to create entertaining light shadows. The custom electronics and software designed and developed by Tellart saved miles of wiring and thousands of soldering joints–the lights were even powered by current sent through the sculpture’s steel structure.
