Light Play with Pulley Table

Filed under: development, P.I.E. — learningstudio @ 2:06 am

We worked with Jessica Strick on combining Light Play with the Make your own pulley exhibit, to see if anything exciting would come out of it. Here are some photos from the three-day session.

Pulley table before we started working on it.

Walter’s oscillating light source.

Spinning mirrors, another Walter creation.

3D shadows.

Karen’s multicolored display. The discovery of dichroic glass was fundamental.

Luigi drilled 267 holes through two disks to get an organic-looking light-shadow interaction.

Walter made an awesome reflector-projector.

Jessica’s display achieved complicated-looking movement without moving any object, just the light sources.
