Have A Seat

image Have-A-Seat is an interactive art installation addressing the issue of people's need for personal space while being in a public place. If two persons sit on the Have-A-Seat it will start to move the two seats, in which it is divided, apart to create a distance of 50 cm between them. This way the need for more personal space is fulfilled.Have-A-Seat is created by Michiel Stade, Sylvain Vriens and Mika Igarashi.

Since about ten years Theo Jansen is occupied with the making of a new nature. Not pollen or seeds but plastic yellow tubes are used as the basic material of this new nature. He makes skeletons which are able to walk on the wind. Eventualy he wants to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives. Don't forget to watch the beautiful BMW commercial with Theo Jansen and some of his skeleton sculptures in it. You can also listen to the 36 minute presentation by Theo Jansen at the Pop!Tech 2005 conference.

image This is a really cool project called Wildlife. It's about projecting wild animals on buildings at night from moving cars. But they programmed the whole thing in such a way that the animal's speed corresponds the speed of the moving car.The animal's movements are programmed to correspond to the speed of the car: as the car moves, the animal runs along it speeding up and slowing down with the car, as the car stops, the animal stops also. The framerate of the movie corresponds to the speed of the wheel rotation, picked up by a sensor. If the presence of a moving object (such as another car or pedestrian) is detected with proximity sensors, its animal "avatar" appears in the projection. Wildlife was made by Karolina Sobecka and it reminds me a lot of the Parasite project which also projected animals on walls from a moving vehicle (train). The added feature of making the speed of the animal correspond with the speed of the car is very cool though!
