Sensing With Light

John Tonkin

Sensing With Light is a collaboration between The Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) at the Univeristy of Adelaide and the artist John Tonkin.

The artwork is made up of a multi-coloured ground based interactive light tower that interacts with a matching LED lattice overhead in Topham Mall (enter from Currie Street). Sensing with Light is best viewed at night.
