"Glowing prisms that are floating in the air will give our invisible communication networks brief physical form.
Powerlines consists of six Illuminated translucent prisms suspended in a freestanding, tensegrity structure. The overall effect will be intricately detailed blocks of light, floating unsupported in the air. Each prism will be six feet long, with a triangular profile—and will be lit on each side with roughly sixty full-color LEDs, allowing for interactive animations that vary across the length and around the circumference of each prism. The light animations will vary according to the position and number of participants in the immediate area."
