MARBLES are large glowing shapes that interact with people through sound, light and colour.

Each MARBLE contains LEDs and smart sensors that instinctively respond to human touch, changing their mood from 'bored' to 'excited'. MARBLES are also able to multiply these interactions between themselves, communicating with each other. 

MARBLES transform the landscape into an interactive meeting place of light. 


2012-2022. Large, strong moulded shapes in a waterproof casing fitted with LEDs, sensor technology, and sound speakers. Uses only 15 watts.

Permanent artwork commissioned by Ymere at the C. van Eesterenplein in Almere, NL.
