Light Lab is a circular light table where visitors can illuminate semitransparent objects such as slides or pieces of colored acrylic.
In the center of the table, light illuminates a fiber-optic chandelier that is located directly overhead. Visitors interact with the exhibit by sliding semitransparent colored objects under the base of the fiber-optic chandelier. When visitors place objects between the light table and the base of the fiber-optics, it changes the color of the ends of the optical fiber. This change can be seen by visitors when looking up at the chandelier.
