Light Bead Curtain: trippy effects for ordinary furnishings


The Light Bead Curtain by Jin-Yo Mok and Ami Wolf is described as an "interactive musical installation," but to the unschooled eye, it looks rather suspiciously like some tripped out home accessory you'd find in your local head shop. The curtain, which was most recently installed in the cafe of the San Jose Museum of Art for ISEA 2006 as part of the Interactive Cafe category of the festival has several modes. The most basic mode allows participants to illuminate and produce sound through touching the beads of the curtain. Other presets allow for cascading patterns and sonic behaviors. While this artwork may not find itself into commercial production anytime soon, it's really a shame that you can't throw this up alongside your Grateful Dead posters and kick back while getting all psychedelic with your friends. It's art and tech for the retro-hippy set!
