Installation: Cosmic Quilt

"Cosmic Quilt" by the design firm The Principals and the Art Institute of New York

This electronic "quilt" measures 8-feet by 16-feet by 12-feet and is comprised of 3,000 separate parts. It is equipped with motors and micro-controllers that react to visitors walking beneath the piece. When it's going full-tilt, it looks like an indoor version of the aurora borealis.
