‘Earthquake Lamp’ by Parse/Error

← Back to Blog

Parse/Error’s Earthquake Lamp reacts in real time to earthquakes felt around the world. When an earthquake occurs the lamp’s lights begin to pulsate and a disturbing earthquake like roar can be heard. Earthquake Lamp’s elongated form represents the Earth’s axis of longitudes while the location and vibrancy of the light on the lamp are determined by where the earthquake occurred and its magnitude. The earthquake data is received from the IRIS (Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology) and will display an animation of the earthquake with only a few minutes lag.

“A hidden face that immediately changes the gaze of the observer, between anguish and fascination, but also invites him to contemplate the reality and beauty of a living planet, constantly moving.” – Excerpt from Parse/Error’s website.
