Handprint Globe sets the tone for the large-scale, kid-powered, collaborative pieces at MOXI The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation. Here, each visitor uses their hands to create collaborative imagery on a gigantic glowing, digital LED sphere.

At Handprint Globe, visitor stations capture infrared and visible light live imagery – and with computer control of the LED system, the handprints are digitally displayed over the entire surface of the globe allowing visitors to work together from their stations to manipulate dynamic patterns. This strong visual is a collective measuring device that can be used to communicate how each person’s individual contributions add up to impact the overall environment.

Visitors can alter their handprint display by selecting one of the many effects available on the visitor station. For special events and evening rentals, the globe can be programmed for specific audiences. It can display feeds from other exhibits or show event video footage.
