Dive into Jen Lewin’s Interactive Light Pool
“The Pool” invites visitors to create dazzling light displays by jumping across 100 glowing pads
“The Pool” is the creation of Jen Lewin—and the thousands of people who hop, skip and jump across its 100 glowing pads. The computerized sculpture, scheduled to appear in Scottsdale (March 21, 2014), Cleveland (August 6-16, 2014) and Singapore in the coming year, fuses visual art, technology and human interaction: When you step onto a pad, it lights up, radiating ripples that collide and commingle with those of other pads. With a few participants, the Pool is a ballet of splashes; with many, it’s a symphony—or cacophony—of color.
