Rubix Xpress - Helsinki, Finland

Description

Inspired by the famous 3D mechanical puzzle, Rubix Xpress was created by Matti Jykylä, an artist who based the lighting installation on a video in which a six year-old boy solves the puzzle in only 37 seconds. For this piece, the solution steps were stretched into a nine minute sequence set to original music by Aake Otsala & Timo Yliräisänen, that culminates in the completion of the puzzle. The cube, measuring three cubic meters with 54 backlit squares, was controlled with an e:cue Butler, eighteen DMX2CC 12 channel units, and the Lighting Application Suite (LAS) Enterprise software with a one-button Action Pad for simple show control. The Butler’s DMX512 universes were divided—one to control the LED matrix transmitter and receiver, and one to control the motor. Rubix Xpress’ advanced matrix required a timeline-based lighting controller easily supplied through the LAS sequencer tool, which simultaneously played the installation’s soundtrack. Installed by Sun Effects Ltd. and unveiled at Lux Helsinki in January 2012 by permission of Seven Town’s Ltd., Rubix Xpress gained much attention and praise from visitors and international media.
