Lighting Effects Basics

Recreate the properties of light in a computer

In this activity, visitors to the exhibit can toggle on and off six lighting effects (shadows, indirect shadows, color bleed, mirror reflection, glossy reflection, and refraction) until the virtual scene looks like its physical counterpart. Because of the integration of the physical elements with the digital ones, we are not able recreate this activity for the web.
