Based on Newton’s Cradle, Yasutoki Kariya at the Musashino Art University, Japan has designed Asobi ( roughly translated play) as part of his senior thesis exhibition. This re-visualized installation is made of 11 computer-programmed incandescent light bulbs (Think Edison!) hung on a string. Kariya’s Asobi playfully visualizes the transfer of kinetic energy, along with an apt click-clack. Instead of using actual kinetic energy that forces the steel balls to move, Kariya has devised a piston based method to create this amazing visual experience.
Doesn’t this design take the concept of ‘mesmerization’ to another level?!
