FEATURED IN

WHAT The Magic Torch is an interactive projection where participants can create an audiovisual spectacle with it. By pointing a flashlight at the screen, viewers revealed hundreds of small stars, bubbles, planets, and unusual abstract shapes that followed its beam of light. As they controlled the light, viewers were able to see how these elements were driven by the movements of their hands, enjoying it as a peculiar remote control.

This project is part of the Permanent Collection of the CosmoCaixa Science Museum, Madrid.
