SELECTED WORKS



Infoscape, Installations, Interactive Elements & Interior Architecture: Onassis Cultural Centre: Athens 2012

The River transforms human, urban and cultural movement into data and then creates new movement through its architecture. It flows over the lobby of a Cultural Centre in Athens, mapping and feeding back change from inside and outside the building. The River is a 110m long frieze carrying an embedded, programmable, transparent LED display. Integrated with projections, touchscreens and furniture in a continuous material structure with a series of architectural plug-ins, the River broadcasts images, words and information, directs movement from the City to the Stage, generates encounters and creates collectivities through touch. The River is both hardware and software; virtual and physical; interactive - digital and analog - fluid, solid and discretely luminous. It introduces and activates architectural forms and interfaces between dynamic events - the crowd, performance, traffic or atmosphere - and their representations - shape, notation, light, images and words - in the Arts and Letters. The River tells linear and non-linear stories.
