Concentricity is a series of three mindblowing interactive light sculptures by NY/NJ-based designer and artist Joshua Kirsch.  Each of the three works presents an illuminated white handle which the viewer is invited to move in any direction.  Reed switches located within the sculpture’s circuitry sense the movements of a magnet contained in the handle and translate that information into LED light. For one of these sculptures, “Concentricity 96″, omnidirectional movement of the center handle is facilitated by twelve hinged pantagraph-type mechanisms.  96 red/white LED arrays as well as LED-lit acrylic circuit boards respond to the viewer’s movements.  The piece measures 38″ in diameter and is 15” deep.  For learn more about Joshua’s incredible work be sure to visit him at as well as his Vimeo page.
