Cradle

Artist: Ashley Corbett-Smith (Australia) 

Collaborators: Matt Webster (Australia) / Greg Smith (Australia) 

Cradle illustrates the transference of kinetic energy (or motion) by hanging five illuminated spheres on a swing frame; participants are encouraged to give the spheres a gentle push so that they swing back and forth – and then watch as the spheres change colour each time they touch.

RGB (Red, Green and Blue) LED lights housed inside each sphere light up and change colour in a variety of ways upon impact, as random colours are generated then transferred from one sphere to another.
