Night Bright Interactive Installation of Nocturnal Discovery

Night Bright is an interactive installation where children physically interact with an imaginary nocturnal ecosystem.  As explained by creator Design I/O:

“Night Bright is an interactive installation of nocturnal discovery where children use their bodies to light up the nighttime forest and discover the creatures that inhabit it.  Listening to the creatures’ sounds children can locate them in the forest, as they play a nighttime game of hide and seek.  Some creatures are curious and will investigate the light, while others are frightened and will hide in the shadows.  Using their light, children can grow nocturnal plants and release fireflies from their flowers.  The fireflies illuminate the environment and help locate the creatures hiding in the forest.
Night Bright was created for the Bumble children’s cafe in Los Altos, California.

Step Inside your Individualized Colorbox

Brought to life as a Kickstarter project, Colorbox is an awesome way to “get inside art.”  Created in part by Gabriel Mott, your motions dictate what happens to projected colors and lights once you step inside a giant white box.  Anyway, Kickstarter seems to be a great platform for interactive art, which can require some very expensive materials such as projectors, cameras, and technology.  Good to know…
