When the Children’s Museum of Utah moved to a new location, they commissioned an interactive sculpture for their atrium. Everything can be controlled by kids in a significant way. All the huge pieces overhead can be moved by visitors turning handwheels, and when the pieces move they control the color of light shining into the glassy atrium. To create this piece Joe developed a unique process for creating colored acrylic that has found applications in the scientific and architectural lighting fields. The hanging liquid tubes are the work of Andrew Smith, a Utah artist with whom he worked.
