Space Folding transforms live flight data into an immersive LED light installation through a series of custom built software applications using Distributed Display Protocol (DDP) to control an addressable array of TRIKLIT light spheres.

The work encourages the audience to imaginatively engage in teleportation. There is a sense of going to a new place, and yet it is the same place. Space Folding achieves this by bringing the aesthetic of the United Arab Emirates and combining it with international air space data to visualise the interconnected nature of cultural dynamics.

Spacefolding by Zina Kaye and team was premiered internationally at ISEA 2014 at Zayed University Dubai.
