UVA’s Volume at the V&A

by Andy Polaine on December 7, 2006

A bit of cross-posting from my Bauhaus blog here, but worth it:

Chris O’Shea over at Pixelsumo has written up a good description of a new work, Volume, by United Visual Artists and onepointsix.

Volume responds to human movement and creates and audio-visual environment from the pillars installed in the V&A‘s John Madjeski garden. Go and check out the links for the technical details and more descriptions of the project (including the behind the scenes photos.

For me, though, the best thing is looking at the blissful, engaged expressions on people’s faces in the pictures (click on that picture to see it full size). That should be your aim as interaction designers/artists. Don’t forget it.

UPDATE: Shane Walter from onedotzero added some more info in his comments which you should check out.

this was a development from the onedotzero_transvision event v+a late where onedotzero invited uva to do a responsive/interactive light and sound installation in the v+a courtyard. this was the first time it had ever been used for a v+a late in the winter months. for images please check the onedotzero flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/groups/onedotzero/ for many images of that and the night as a whole.
