Earlier this week, Bobby mentioned that he’s been on a recent “neon and lasers kick.” I thought “Oh yeah, lasers are awesome!” and then I came across this video of a recent installation by a group calling themselves Marshmallow Laser Feast that makes extensive use of… what else… lasers.
The installation, called Forest, is a field of interactive and springy rods with lasers shooting out of the ends of them toward the ceiling. Not only does touching the rods set the canopy of reflecting light into motion, but touch also triggers sounds unique to each rod. The overall effect seems to be as immersive as traveling through an actual forest would be, only this forest is a giant techno-instrument that looks like something out of Tron. Other work from Marshmallow Laser Feast utilizes flying robots, aerodynamics, and complex projector mapping. It’s all in the Creator’s Project video below and it’s all a pretty big technological feast.
