Tina Fung and Reza Hasni’s ‘Candy Quartz’ featuring seesaws set amongst colorful illustrations representing child-like fun and play, and LEDscontrol’s ‘ShadowDial’, an installation inviting you to explore time through light, shadow and movement, are just two of the seven interactive light installations you can look forward.
