Xpect is a luminokinetic object and is technically and substantially based on DeepThought.
The object is controlled by an artificial intelligence (AI), which develops a self-esteem for the colors, combinations and speeds shown during the process. This leads to an artificial feeling of happiness through self-observation and critical analysis. The feeling can be experienced through an LED in the base.
The object is designed for contemplation, and allows the expansion of perception and sphere of thought while at the same time calming down everyday influences.
The random selection of light patterns and colors are varied and are influenced by the AI, so that the overall structure has a unique sculptural look, while the internal changes keep being unpredictable.
