Light Totem An iu tradition

Eskenazi Art Museum features the "Light Totem", an IU staple, tradition among students and is on the IU Bucket List. The Light Totem was constructed in 2007 by Rob Shakespeare, IU professor Emeritus in Lighting Design. Students can often be found with their feet on the wall and backs on the sidewalk experiencing a different point of view.

"It is LED, has random patterns of lights, it has all of these different LED lights that go all the way up it, there are dozens of them. They cast all kinds of crazy light on the museum at night." Said Manager of Public Relations and Marketing, Eskenazi Museum of Art at IU, Abe Morris
IU Incoming Freshman Michael Broodo and group of peers experience the Light Totems projections from an unique point of view.
"We had just heard it was an IU tradition. All of us are super excited to go there and had all just met at orientation. Our advisors told us that it was a fun but very cliche thing to do at IU for an Instagram pic, so we were like, hey why not?" Said Incoming IU Freshman Michael Broodo.
"It's an IU light night tradition, you just o take a picture with your feet up on the wall' Said Incoming IU Freshman Connor Randol
"We do it to keep the IU tradition" Said Incoming IU Freshman Brittany Taylor
