Harvard Graduate School of Design student Christina Geros MAUD, MLA ’15 is the winner of the second Radcliffe Institute public art competition with her innovative design Latent (e)Scapes. Acrylic scapes are lit from within and below by internal LED lighting. Using a combination of infrared and ultrasound proximity sensors the scapes react to natural forces and the movement of pedestrians in the garden.

Latent (e)Scapes is located in the Wallach Garden of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. Night viewings are recommended to experience the full effect of this responsive art installation.
