Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s installation, KALEIDOSCOPE, is an interactive walk-in lightbox that uses the human brain to create colors. The surface of the light box has cyan, magenta, and yellow ink floating between layers of PVC foil. These colors are completely created by the brain through the overlap of red, green, and blue ink that is present. Viewers interact with the installation by displacing and moving the ink with their body, creating a mix of colors. A camera captures the ink’s movement and plays it back on the LED screens that surround the lightbox.
