The exhibit was the product of a two week workshop on gestural control with undergrad and grad students of architecture at Tianjin University, Tianjin, China. The isolated leap sensors allow users to wave a hand to specifically navigate viewfinders to move around the wall highlighting animated optical illusions of students within the courtyard.  The concept was to revive the memory of the courtyard that used to exist in the center of the architecture that has since been filled in with classes including the Digital Design Lab.  The image of the former garden courtyard was comprised of hundreds of smaller images each of which contained a special optical illusion.
