To load the latest version of this construal, copy-and-paste this file (as originally this file) into the JS-EDEN Input Window (as at http://jseden.dcs.warwick.ac.uk/scifest), and press Submit. Alternatively, enter the command:

and press Submit. Here is a preliminary version of a playsheet for this construal.

To exercise the construal, you click the buttons at the periphery to toggle on and off rays of light that originate from each 16 possible directions and locations disposed around the sides of the LightBox array. To change the configuration of mirrors, you can click on each of the 16 cells. The contents of a cell cycles through three possibilities - it can contain a forward facing mirror, a backfacing mirror or no mirror. You may need to allow a little time for the construal to respond to clicks when adjusting the mirror orientations.

A JSPE complement to the LightBox gives some initial reflections on possible activities and issues these raise! To load this, enter the command:

include("construals/SciFest2015/light-box/notesLB.js-e");

and press Submit.

To load this, invoke the JSPE from a Project List in the JS-EDEN environment, copy-and-paste the JSPE source into the Input Window and press Submit.
