"Geometry Playground" Exhibit (Image 3)

July 16, 2013
"Geometron," a specially commissioned artwork by John Edmark for the "Geometry Playground" exhibit at the San Francisco Exploratorium. With "Geometron," viewers look into a tapered kaleidoscope to see a live video that creates a 120-sided shape and explore the many symmetries within the image by moving glowing shapes in the camera's view. Developed by the Exploratorium, "Geometry Playground" is a fully interactive exhibition that includes over 20 exhibits and specially commissioned artworks. With "Geometry Playground," visitors use their hands, their bodies and their minds to explore what for most has been only a textbook subject. The exhibition was funded by the National Science Foundation (grant DRL 06-10436) and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. Credit: Photo by Jordan Stein
