The Pool

The Pool by Jen Lewin is an interactive environment of giant, concentric circles created from more than 100 interactive circular pads, inviting visitors to walk, dance, jump, and play with the piece. The installation allows visitors to enter a world where play and collaborative movement create swirling effects of light and color. Using mesh-network technology and custom code, visitors can activate platforms that respond to touch—encouraging participation in an ever-changing composition. Inspired by Australian tidal pools, Lewin developed technology and code to bring this experience to IC.
