Info :

A 3D scanned block of concrete taken from the ruined Library of Birmingham was spun in 3D space, while virtual oil was poured over it at timed intervals. The streams of oil were affected by realtime stockmarket oil price changes scraped from the Internet.

The software was built in Unity and exhibited at New Art Gallery, Walsall
