Expressive Light Scribing links

A new project! The goal of this project is to get teenagers to move around more. A very attractive thing to do, that also requires that you move around, is making light graffiti, or light scribing, or light art.

My coaches this semester will be prof. dr. Ben Schouten, dr. Tilde Bekker and Rob Tieben. The client is the PlayFit Consortium.
