“Photon Translations” is a piece of installation art that incorporates all the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) and is on display at the Stoneleigh-Burnam School in Greenfield, Massachusetts. Installation art is just what it implies: art that is created for the purpose of being installed at a particular location. Sometimes the artwork can be interactive, allowing audience members to participate in the experience in some dynamic way. Terry Marashlian of Northfield, Massachusetts, created this artwork. The author collaborated with Marashlian on creating the musical chimes.
