A Light Touch II is the second version of the large-scale installation A Light Touch. It is based on a similar apparatus but displays a massive number of light particles. In this installation, participants can interact with the particle system projected on a rear surface using their hand movement qualities. The particles are made of small lights that have a physical behavior that responds to the participant’s expressive hand movement qualities. The visuals are responsive and have self-agency, creating an environment that seems to be alive on it own way.
