Adam Johnson is one of the finalists in Ketel One’s “A Gentleman’s Call” search for an innovative idea worth $100,000.

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design.
