Color Mixing Machine
Color Mixing Machine is an interactive exhibit that allows visitors to mix colors on massive translucent, colorful wheels in front of them. The back wheel is stationary and features 6 large and 12 small different colored films. The front-wheel contains 3 large and 3 small colored films. As visitors spin the helm in front of the large color wheels, they can see the different effects of moving a blue film over yellow, green over orange, and so on. By placing this exhibit in a large window, Color Mixing Machine takes advantage of the natural light streaming in and provides a dramatic visual presence as well as supplying an engaging activity for museum-goers.
