May 2015 Here is a segment on the Morris Museum that was broadcast by WMBC-TV in the New York City & northern New Jersey area last weekend.

The Sun Altered Cube: A solar powered kinetic installation by Michael Jantzen The painted steel Sun Altered Cube is a large solar powered kinetic art installation designed by Michael Jantzen to be placed into a public park.

She got it to bounce by sheathing cotton over thin spring-steel strips.
