Installation: Silo468

Is it just me, or would this look like a set piece for a live-action Bioshock movie?
"Silo 468 is a permanent light art piece that will transform an abandoned oil silo in Helsinki into a light display and civic center.

Th silo is 35 meter width and 16 meter hight, located in a highly visible spot in the southern part of Kruunuvuorenranta, eastern of Kruunuvuorenselk√§, just 2 km across the Helsinki’s city center. The silo is covered in a lights grid that can be viewed up to 5km away. The project is part of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 event.
The software creates a particle system that combines motion behaviors from birds, insects, an fishes to create organic and non repetitive animations for the lighting system, in a 128 x 10 LED grid. This animations are being generated using current data from the local weather, specially wind speed and direction, to create a vast and unpredictable array of light movements that give the viewer a visual representation of the weather sensations in the city."
