The Monsoon bar at the Kennedy Center, Washington D.C. features a large scale undulating, illuminated “carpet” hanging from the ceiling. Its pattern is composed of vertically hung strings, the lengths of which determine the steepness and shape of the undulations. The illumination of this carpet creates fantastic effects when the vertical strings calculatedly interrupt light beams to cast a flood of variegated shadows on the floor.
