The official story is that Heatherwick Studios designed this bamboo-spined/ LED-tipped structure for the UK Pavillion at the 2010 Shanghai Expo. The hovering “cilia” will move in the wind, giving the viewer a 3-D show of LED images, or a good old-fashioned grand mal seizure.  You can read the detailed publicity here, but likely its true purpose will become clear in 2012. Either this Englishman is part of a thinly veiled Mayan conspiracy or just watched this too many times on cable. (ID)
