Drift Grid
(I),
2005
interactive video installation
5 x 5 feet

This is a large wall piece containing 16 dynamic panels. The shapes on each panel slowly drift upwards, changing their look and behavior as they cross the membrane between panels. When viewers look at a particular column of panels, the shapes on that column slow their movement: they continue to grow, but no longer drift upwards. Although the columns begin identically, they drift over time in reaction to viewers' gaze

Drift
, 2004
video projector, computer, custom software
1 1/2 x 6 feet

Organic shapes grow, shrink, split and join across five projected panels, drifting slowly from right to left and traveling from one panel to the next. When a shape drifts off the left-edge of the leftmost panel, it reenters into the rightmost panel. The system is a closed loop, and the shapes never repeat.

Each panel imposes a different set of rules governing movement and growth, and as a shape crosses a panel boundary, its look and behavior change. Although the panels look very different, the growth on each is based on the same set of chemical models, with simple changes to the parameters of these models causing large changes in behavior.


Drip Ticker,
2005
video projector, computer, custom software
variable size

Drip Ticker is a three-row variation of Drip where each row travels at a different speed and is simulated at a different scale. The travel direction of each of the rows changes every few minutes


Drip (Escalators)
,
2005
video projector, computer, custom software
10 x 16 feet
A site-specific version of Drip created for Boston City Hall, Drip (Escalators) has two rows of organic shapes that grow, shrink, split and join along a concrete wall. One row drifts upwards, the other downwards, both at the same speed as people on the escalators above, reflecting people's movements through the space
