Age Suitability: All ages
Light Pushes Stuff by Late Interactive allows you to control an array of kinetic lights with the light from a torch. An interactive installation about Radiation Pressure featuring the technologies to be developed in the HOT-FET Proactive project (Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies).
The team that brought you Brainrave are back at Science in the City with even more lights and so much more awesomeness. Late Interactive will be inundating Ordinance Street with an installation of carefully placed kinetic lights, controlled by nothing other than light from a torch. Use your sense to feel and see the power of the radiation pressure induced by the humble torch light. while creating movements, shapes and pressures on panels of 60 kinetic light pads.
This project is co funded by the Malta Arts Fund and Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies (HOT), a FET Proactive project funded by the Horizon 2020 (H2020, 2014–2020) Programme of the European Commission.
