The main exhibits are very instagrammable. They’re mostly different light installations that run on infinitely variable algorithms, so they are supposed to factor in human interaction, but they’re not immediately responsive or anything, so the interactive aspect is not very obvious or gratifying. We had the most fun in the adjacent building, which is the kids section. In the screen below, you color in a 2D drawing of a vehicle or house, and once you scan it with the scanner, it renders a 3D object that appears in this animated space! So fun! I made the blue and purple bus with the heart window.
