recently discovered this interactive work on grahamplumb.com. this reactive cube works by projecting a 2-d image through a 3-d mass - in this case water mixed with a specially formulated emulsion. the emulsion is composed of micron-sized particles of oil formulated to stay suspended in water. the projected light is captured by the oil and appears to become a virtually real object. isn't this amazing?
this project has gone a long way. the later versions of the cube were developed in collaboration with Time Roope of Tomato Interactive and Andy Allenson of Romandson. it has been shown at exhibitions in the UK, Italy, Japan, Singapore and the USA.
