A Tilt of Light is an installation from the Australian art and design studio Eness. The interactive seesaw consists of 32 rows of LED lights that responds to your tilt, and illuminates as you ride on it. Furthermore, it has a built-in physics engine so users can explore how an object might function in various atmospheres, such as how a ping pong ball might bounce on the moon; what happens when you drop a bowling ball in yoghurt; or what happens to balloon immersed in water.

The lighting project is currently on display at Federation Square in Melbourne until 1 July, 2012. Eness explains that, “We bring home a playful new work exploring worldly forces and objects at play in the familiar childhood seesaw. Be nice, play safe and enjoy.”
