Electroland was commissioned by the Los Angeles Fashion Center to create a large scale building facade installation to interact with the activity out on the street. The project uses a camera feed from the roof in order to track the movement of cars in front of the building. Each time a car passes, a bright blue wave of light accompanies it and sweeps across the front of the building.
My role on the project was to develop the Java software necessary to interpret data from the camera feed and create animations to be sent out as lighting data. I was in charge of developing the interface and testing different algorithms for creating wave simulations and lighting test patterns.
This work is publicly viewable at 14th St. and San Pedro St. in Los Angeles.
