My newest project assignment is an environmental design with a partner. The location for the design would be the entrance way to the KCAI green area by the Nelson Atkins Museum. My partner, Cal, and I started on the same page with the focus being an interactive design. The direction we are thinking will look geometric but somewhat rough to match the natural surrounding area. Our current idea would be a large Newton's cradle installation that might interact with the lights in the pathway of the area, and the cradle would be mounted on large "crystalline" pillars that would form a grand entry-way.
Here is a video of a direction we were thinking could go with the newton's cradle idea.
