KALEIDOSCOPE is an analog interactive installation, a placebo painting. It is a large lightbox with layers of inks in cyan, magenta and yellow … which are „virtual“ because those colors are completely created by our brain. The visitors can move the inks and produce by overlapping the colors red, green and blue … which can be perceived by human retina … and thus are the „real colors“. So, here … by playing with the inks … in fact you are playing with your own brain. But then all this is displayed in pure RGB coding as projection. Here the „real colors“ generate in return the „virtual colors“. This is all about the interaction between the real and virtual impressions. > more







EXPLORATORIUM is more than a museum. Developed by Frank Oppenheimer, an American particle physicist it’s an ongoing exploration of science, art, and human perception. 

The Exploratorium is a museum, a twenty-first-century learning laboratory exploring the world through science, art, and human perception. It values lifelong learning and teaching, curiosity and inquiry, our community, iteration and evidence, integrity and authenticity, sustainability, and inclusion and respect.
Over the past few years, Exploratorium scientists, builders, and educators have pioneered innovative ways to make interdisciplinary connections, working with everyone from researchers at the South Pole and NASA scientists studying the atmosphere of the sun, to playground designers creating immersive experiences for children, to Tibetan monks learning Western science and technology—particularly the Exploratorium’s approach to inquiry-based science and hands-on investigation.
