Night Bright is an interactive installation of nocturnal discovery where children use their bodies to light up the nighttime forest and discover the creatures that inhabit it. Listening to the creatures’ sounds children can locate them in the forest, as they play a nighttime game of hide and seek. Some creatures are curious and will investigate the light, while others are frightened and will hide in the shadows. Using their light, children can grow nocturnal plants and release fireflies from their flowers. The fireflies illuminate the environment and help locate the creatures hiding in the forest.
Almost as enjoyable as the main video is the raw Kinect footage (bottom of page)
