physical translation of data into occupiable spaces

:: Bran is a rover who was intended to only occupy Mars. Due to technical problems, six Bran were also released on earth.
:: Bran is designed to explore and measure environmental qualities of any given location such as wind, soil properties, various gas levels, humidity, and vibrations, and display real time data.
:: The data is then translated into spaces and visual cues.
:: The Hanging Wind Ball is a direct translation of wind properties. Only those who have become overly familiar with the wind conditions can know where the HWB is headed next. Others are in for a fun surprise.
:: The gas rooms wont hurt you however each gas reacts differently to room materials.
:: The springs stretch and loosen based on pressure.
:: The exterior skin adjusts its opacity based on humidity and UV levels.
:: Upon entrance, Bran could seem very confusing. Its state of calmness solely depends on the environmental conditions. It feeds off the energy of its context and is always unpredictable.
:: Bran welcomes all users. Its most frequently visited guests are the mysterious creatures of Mars. They specifically enjoy the change in their color as they relax in one of the gas rooms.
:: One can enter Bran through the enclosed infinity stair or the pendulum elevator. Be prepared to spend some time as this part is meant to help you understand the nature of Bran prior to initial explorations. Visitors are first simply allowed to move in between the two skin layers.
:: As one starts to understand the key behaviors of Bran, they are then allowed to enter the grand interior hall or commute through the level measuring transfer cabin.
:: The indoor/outdoor platform is however open to both the frequents and the first time users
