Five visual artists have teamed up to create over a dozen projections.
They include a sandbox where visitors can change the color of the sand just by moving it with a shovel. When they react to a sensor, the colors correspond to those on a map – blue for low-lying spaces like water and white for high mountain peaks covered with snow.
The artist Filip Feex, who nurtured the idea for 15 years, finally invested his own money and a bank loan in the project.
He says the Lumia Gallery, which he believes is unique, will change over time as new screens emerge.
