Interactive light installation
Slide projector, white paint on MDF board

A board painted with ordinary white wall paint is illuminated by a slide projector at an extremely shallow angle. The structure of the painted surface shows up as a sparkling light pattern against a deep black background. Bringing a hand near to the surface causes the light from the side to catch the skin of the fingertips and reflect back onto the board.
