“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. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day.

Graffiti artist DAKU has created a typographic piece in the Lodhi colony area of New Delhi. Words associated with life and the passage of time are mounted perpendicularly, casting shadows that shift along with the day’s light like a sundial. See more images and video below!
