Lightchimes is an interactive chandelier, a twinkling sky you can touch, one-hundred-sixty-nine fireflies that sparkle as you run your hands through them. A collaboration with Jimmy Chion and Jason Chua, Lightchimes started as a Stanford Arts Grant funded project in late 2009. The first iteration debuted in April 2010 at "An Art Affair", Stanford's annual student art festival. After receiving a second round of funding to improve our piece, we tore it apart and rebuilt the whole thing. Lightchimes (V 2.0) exhibited in October 2010 at a student show (Party on the Edge) at Cantor Arts Center at Stanford.
