Interference

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!
