Discover Interactive Art at Intersect by Lexus
Lexus loves creativity, art, and technology — that’s well-demonstrated by the Lexus Design Awards and the automaker’s 60,000-hour documentary on craftsmanship. Now, you can see — and touch — that spirit of innovation at the newest exhibit showcased at New York City’s Intersect by Lexus.

“Sway” by Snarkitecture
New York-based Snarkitecture created the “Sway” exhibit, which was inspired by technology, interactivity, and beautiful design. This immersive exhibit consists of 168 touch-responsive LED-illuminated acrylic spheres, mirrored walls, and a white cork floor. Each sphere is mounted on a flexible swaying pole, and changes color and intensity based on how it’s moved. Visitors are invited to touch the spheres and create light ripples throughout the exhibit.
“As mentors for the 2016 and 2017 Lexus Design Awards, we were excited to continue our partnership with Lexus to create a new immersive installation,” said Alex Mustonen, the co-founder of Snarkitecture. He went on to explain that Snarkitecture is passionate about making architecture engaging and accessible for everyone.
True to that spirit, the “Sway” installation will be free and open to the public. You can see it on display from May 3, 2019 through June 2, 2019.
