Pepsi-Cola Pavilion, (Osaka, Japan), 1970.

The interior of the Pavilion was a 90 foot diameter 210 degree spherical mirror made of aluminized mylar. The mirror created real images of the visitors, which hung in space above their heads. The floor was made of different materials and sounds associated with each section of the floor could be heard in handsets carried by the visitors. Japanese and American artists were invited to program the sound and visual elements of the Pavilion.
