The Magic Cube
A mobile, sculptural multimedia, glass and video art installation that uses colored light to shape and support the properties of the Crazy Diamond and to discover new spatial and color architectures. As a quick shot see this Youtube demo.
Sharing beauty of glass art enriched by optics preferably with educational and cultural institutions in which the fusion of sound, music, video and art plays a key role.
The show consists of 3 presentations:
* Color Games
.. the transparent glass object is slowly turning and illuminated in a hidden way by 2 separate color light sources from bottom up which make it glow in rich spectral variety. Meditation music helps to sit and wonder. Color scenarios can be modified by Philips Hue App -based interaction. A multicolor approach with 2 additional external light sources from left and right are opening infinite color spaces on top.
.. overlay of clockwise and counterclockwise videos taken from the object leads to full spectra kind of outer space architectures. A live camera signal is mixed with a prepared video track or could be a second live camera in mirrorred mode. Live color scenarios can be modified by App-based interaction. Discoveries with different camera positions allow exploration of enhanced spaces by different levels of horizontal offset

Is a mobile multi-media, glass and sculptural art installation using colored illumination to shape, use and support glass object properties.
2 Operations are available:
1) Upper box is the core illumination unit fed by external or battery power from box underneath. Can operate cordless anywhere except under humidity. The core illumination is a set of 2 separate color LED light sources coupling light into glass bottom. Light coupling is masked to illuminate just the glass core. A third optional color light source couples light into the bottom side to represent and perform full RGB color space. The object is being rotated by a switchable turntable. Music tuned to the light operation is available. Light Scenarios are remotely controlled via Philips Hue Bluetooth App. Observers are able to play around with custom color changes if connected to Philips Hue App.
2) To create new color and spatial architectures, a clockwise and counterclockwise operation has to be overlaid. This works by pre-processed videos taken from same point of view as with the live camera video signal. Both video signals are mixed and output to maximum 4 iOS devices via Accsoon App or directly connected to a cinema projector.
