The New York Time's arts writer Holland Cotter gave a glowing review of the the Museum. Follow the link to read it.
The centerpiece to the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum is a forty-five foot tall, interactive light sculpture that has a total of 7500 individually controlled led light modules programmed to follow stimulus from visitor movements detected by four Microsoft Kinect Sensors. Pre-programmed light show modes choreographed to inspirational music play twice an hour. Tim Creed (CED partner/CTS-D) and Mandie Clark (CED-CTS-D) engineered the control, audio and power systems that allowed this ambitious artistic adventure to come to fruition. It took hundreds of hours of research and development to bring to life the fantastic concepts of Hilferty Museum Designs (Athens, Ohio) and Monadnock Media (Hatfield, Mass.). And credit to Transformit Inc. of Portland, Maine for physically manufacturing, assembling, skinning with holographic fabric and hanging the extraordinary piece, no easy task!
