Visitors of the LEXUS Hybrid Art exhibition in Morcow, Russia, had the possibility to see this beautiful and intriguing CRYSTAL artwork and play with light untill 22 August. We decided to share with you guys this amazing project because, like all the other projects ranging from fashion to architecture envisioned by Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde, this one also explores the dynamic relation between technology, people and architecture. CRYSTAL is a smart interactive installation with a spacey design thanks to small luminous rocks that instinctively interact with movement.

Seven-hundred LED rocks (variable sizes), that are wirelessly charged via a power mat are designed to create a sensual relation between people, light and technology. This unique site-specific installation  is like a “digital campfire”, where people can share their stories of light in a very public way. Every time they interact with the small LED rocks, they light up, looking like the new Lego from Mars, as Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde said. The crystals can be added, moved or shared by visitors keeping them curious through their ever changing lighting behaviour from ‘excited’ to ‘bored’. Great interactive design for events or architecture! Check out also the other remarkable works of Studio Roosegaarde.
