We were challenged to create a new form of interaction for the Lightwall installation at the Carnegie Library in Knoxville. Working with the Lightwall's existing API, we created and implemented a prototype using Processing and TouchOSC, and shared it with the library staff and kids. Then, the fun began!
A kinetic sculpture integrated into its environment subtly communicates awareness of the on-going global refugee crisis (#refugeecrisis). It offers viewers a chance to raise awareness of this important issue on social media, which is the medium through which interactions with the installation take place, using the hash tag #flighttofreedom.

Portal is an urban element for extending the perception of the surrounding space, enabling connection with hidden realities and people in our geographical surroundings and excluded from the public sphere.
The goal of our project was to inform people about the risks of using a public wifi network. We created a lighting installation that detects devices using public wi-fi and, after this detection, responds with a lighting pattern that tracks and follows the user. It is also able to detect which app the user has open, responding with lighting color changes that correspond to the apps visual identity and a notification sound in the environment representing a notification received from this app.
