Light Kinetics is an interactive installation by Espadaysantacruz, a Madrid-based, creative studio. In the artwork, the 1st light bulb is connected to a piezoelectric sensor, which transfers force from the tap into a change in the electrical charge sent to the rest of the circuit.
The change in electrical charge then runs a physics simulator which controls the rest of the light bulbs in the circuit, leading to a roller coaster of light seen in the video above.
The project is a continuation of a previous simulation shown here:
It’s a interesting concept.. I’m excited to see what they try next.
