If there ever was an art installation on a budget, it would be Lumarca by Matt Parker, a new media artist, game designer and Adjunct Professor at New York University’s Interactive Telecommunication Program. Though it boasts a massive scale of 50 feet, it only uses $20 worth of yarn. Essentially a simple concept, colorful and luminous images are projected onto the string to create a mesmerizing display.

Although Lumarca by Matt Parker can, and in a way should, be considered an art installation, the designer thinks of it as more of a platform. Creating a sort of kit that will allow anyone to build their own Lumarca, he says, "I’d really love to see a really great game for it."
