Interactive Window Displays

Blink of an Eye and Loading are two interactive window displays created around the theme of time. One Fast. One Slow. Both a reflection of our "right now."

 

The windows were displayed from November 8 - 14, 2016 at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts windows on Laguardia Pl and W 3rd St in Greenwich Village in Manhattan.

Blink of an eye

Blink of an Eye flashes your life before your eyes. Your Instagram life. By texting the number listed on the window your Instagram account (ie: @tasteofstreep), the eye will blink and flash your images to give you a glimpse back into your past.

loading

Loading is a tangible interpretation of the time spent waiting for our technology. The dreaded "wheel of death" is taken out of your screen and made physical in this installation. With a simple interaction, you can push the 'start' button to give the work one last nudge and help the screen finish loading what is now a common medium that is used for digital communication: gifs. 


Website

For the Blink of an Eye Installation, a stand-alone landing page was designed and coded to describe the concept, mechanics and team members.
