Hoberman Associates has teamed up with Innovative Designs and Barco to create the Expanding Video Screen, a transformable elliptical screen for the U2 360° Tour. Based on Hoberman's patented Iris structure, this "fusion of architecture, stage scenery and extreme technology" stretches upwards to form a 7-story cone around the band, displaying footage directed by the Irish artist Catherine Owens.
