Internet participants choose issues and cultural color
models which result in a designated color hue transferred to bays of colored
LED lights. Web participants can see the change and status of the installation
space via web camera. The shared experience is both the gift of the remote
participant, as well as a gauge or color representation of the current world
events. Installation visitors are then immersed in the ambient light.
