Pixels Sense the Presence of People

PING GENIUS LOCI is a programmable space installation, a new member in the induction house series, developed by aether architecture with Bengt Sjln. Based largely on the research thread developed during the previous installations, version 4 tries to achieve the programmable matter aspect of the induction house series on a much larger scale, with more direct interaction scenarios.

We have developed self sustainable analogue pixels that work outdoors in the sunshine, using solar power and radio communication, and can sense the presence of people. We are now producing 400 of these sensor pixels to create a large interactive field, that functions both as a sensor field and a large outdoor screen. At the same time interaction scenarios, games and functions are being developed, to open up architecture to its use. [via [blogged by Regine on we-make-money-not-art]
