Originally made for the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, this installation covered two buildings in holographic panels that shifted color once lasers were reflected off it, creating a dazzling array of invisible light pyrotechnics.

Neat. Reminds us a bit of Harpa, the building where we held a gathering in Reykjavik, Iceland. This video gives a nice tour, although it’s too bad that it misses out on sharing the exterior magic that occurs when night falls.
There’s been plenty of oohing and ahhing over the opening of New York’s Museum of Math, and for good reason. It’s remarkable how fun math can be in the hands of the right curator. To wit: The inaugural installation by artist and perceptual scientist Matthew Brand. Brand is the inventor of something called the specular hologram, a type of optical illusion that tricks your eye into thinking a 2-D object is 3-D.
