POOL (verb) = combine, amalgamate, blend, join forces, league, merge, put together, share.

"The Pool" is an environment of giant, concentric circles created from interactive circular pads. By entering "The Pool", you enter a world where play and collaborative movement create swirling effects of light and color. Imagine a giant canvas where you can paint and splash light collaboratively. As multiple users play in "The Pool", their interactions become mesmerizing patterns of shifting and fading colors.

Since 2012 alone, "The Pool" has traveled to over 30 major installations worldwide, including festivals in Singapore, Sydney, Lisbon, Prague, London, Istanbul and at Burning Man and has clocked millions of user steps. It is weather resistant and designed for aggressive use: Like a giant game of light ‘ping pong,’ the pool will have users running and jumping, adding, bouncing, and mixing light together.
