An Interactive Light Sculpture That Converts Refracted Light Into Sound

Lenses is an interactive light sculpture by the design firm HUSH that converts refracted light into sound as users arrange prisms on its surface.

We created an interactive audiovisual installation that uses prisms, light and sound to represent the interplay of ideas between our designers, architects, musicians, and technologists. By arranging the prisms across a surface designed to bend and reflect light, users build a glowing, colorful visual array. This is then read by custom software and translated into sounds in real-time, resulting in a warm, ambient soundscape to accompany the powerful visual composition.
