The Pool by Jen Lewin

Unfortunately, a few seconds after I arrived, all the lights went off.­ I just had time to take one photo.­

Description by the artist:
Dive In The Pool is an environment of giant, concentric circles created from interactive, wireless circular pads.­ By entering the pool, you enter a world where play and collaborative movement can create a cascading effect of swirling light and color.­ By adding and subtracting light, individuals and groups of people will be able to interact with The Pool in profound ways.­ The interaction will vary dramatically depending on the number of individuals involved.­ This dynamic interaction between individuals and The Pool will create environments ranging from curious and playful with few participants to energetic and competitive with many participants.­ Like a giant game of light _­ping pong,_­ the pool will have users running and jumping, adding, bouncing, and colliding their lights.­
