MIT’s 150th Festival

MIT celebrated their 150th Anniversary last year with a lot of interactive light installations.  Above, “Maxwell’s Dream” by Kaustuv De Biswas and Daniel Rosenberg was made up of magnetic handles that visitors played with, manipulating the magnetic field and corresponding light sources behind it.  Below, Meejin Yoon created “Light Drift,” where sensors detected people interacting with the glowing orbs on land and consequently communicated and changed the glowing orbs floating out in the Charles River, allowing people to see the effect of their play.
