Sprite Symphony is a magical installation using projections and sound to create a beautiful yet dark display of fairies that have been trapped in jam jars and are trying to escape their glass cages. The fairies knock and tap on their jars and thereby create a polyphonic musical composition. The sprites are currently exhibited in a Victorian display cabinet in the RSC theatre foyer in Stratford upon Avon. Created by Davy and Kristin McGuire

This is just brilliant! Self-aware glowing ice-cubes that beat to the ambient music. The electronics inside the ice-cubes know how fast and how much you are drinking. The cubes change color from green to orange to finally red as you keep drinking beyond the safety limit. If things get out of control, the cubes send a text to your close friend using your smartphone. Created by Dhairya Dand
