Painting with Light

Painting with Light allows visitors to exercise creativity and self-expression by using color and light. Users create tessellating patterns by digitally producing fantastic wallpaper designs that are then projected onto a large white wall in front of them. Visitors can further customize the design of their illuminated wallpaper by using an assortment of digital tools including various brushes and stamps.

Visitors start by selecting a tessellating framework on which to draw. Using the touchscreen they can paint their design using a variety of colors. Each brushstroke the visitor makes is instantly repeated to create a wallpaper pattern.
