This piece uses our infrared sensing technology on a rear-projected screen.
As participants place their hands on the canvas,
light emanates in the direction their hand is facing. When a second
hand is placed, the light beams interfere with one another creating
brilliant and beautiful interference patterns. The simulation is
actually an accurate scientific visualization of radio-frequency interferometry, and by the time one has played with it for a few minutes one
can't help but intuit the beauty of Maxwell's equation even if one has never heard of them!
