Interactive sound and light sculpture
entry to the Learning Resource Center
Transforming the architect’s “entry circle” into an intriguing, mysterious interactive light/sound environment, setting the tone for the entrance to this new campus and a statement on the relationship between high technology and “creative play”.




COLUMNS OF LIGHT – Each of the six columns becomes a “column of light.”


SOUND SCORE – When you pass between two of the columns, you activate the columns on either side as well as an ever-changing mix of melodic and environmental sounds. 


RIDDLE – Written on a plaque in the floor, there is a riddle.  If you can decipher the pattern, the environment will “play” a short piece of its own.
