Body Heat + Light

Lotus Dome by Daan Roosegaarde is in some ways really similar to my last post about the faux-fur pom pom mirror. This work uses foil that responds to heat from the human body to let light through a domed structure. I found the piece strangely intimate due to the need for physical closeness with an entirely inanimate object to evoke a response.
