Interaction Defined by Interference

2.4_interference_interaction by Michelle Teran: A wireless, networked play space is constructed from cameras, bikes and public monitors in stores, banks and cafes. The movement and flow of an urban environment is captured and transmitted by wireless cameras connected to moving bicycles. The interaction and interference of flow when travelling through the city is visualized and broadcasted from television sets at local businesses, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior spaces.

The cameras transmit wirelessly on the same frequency and interfere with each other. This collision of radio waves translates into distorted and volatile real-time editing of video and audio viewable on a monitor within range. Interaction is defined by interference. Either entering as a cyclist or non-cyclist, the public becomes engaged with a network where negotiations between people and hardware, cross signals culminates in a continuous spatial-temporal state of change.
