Creating Multi-Participant Public Art Installations: Challenges and Solutions

I create architectural scale interactive public art installations. I strive to construct spaces that are both viscerally engaging and intellectually meaningful. My installations combine sensors, often bespoke computer vision systems, with computer controlled media, either projection or large LED screens.

For example, I recently collaborated on Aurora. Aurora employs 47,000 LED RGB lights diffused by 600 curved plastic panels and a custom person tracking system to create a interactive passageway.

There are many aesthetic and technical challenges facing an artist creating interactive public art installations: How can you create a system that allows for interaction of multiple participants? When engaging with multiple participants how can you make the interaction meaningful for the individual? What kind of technical strategies are needed to to achieve your aesthetic goals?

I will explore the aesthetic and technical questions raised by my recent projects and discuss possible solutions to these challenges.
