Facilities Management Services (FMS) at Carnegie Mellon University has released an RFP for an artful, peripheral way to communicate current energy usage to the campus community. The goal of the project is based on the idea that if community members are aware of their power usage, especially during high-load seasons (summer, finals, etc), they will be more conscious of their decisions to conserve energy.
Crystal Tributaries is an homage to the three flowing rivers of Pittsburgh, which define this city as a terminus for industry, manufacturing, and processing - but also for art, technology, and culture. Rigid tesselations bend and break through airport corridors, illuminating as light on water's surface. Ephemeral and current, Crystal Tributaries is fundamentally Pittsburgh.
Flow is a site specific interactive artwork, created for Sam and Dale Griffin’s new Palo Alto home. The piece uses soil moisture data and projection mapping to enhance the landscape architecture by Andrea Cochran come nightfall.
