Technology is more than a set of tools for pragmatic areas of endeavor such as medicine or communication or transportation; it can also be a medium for creative expression and play. The Imagination Playground gallery invites visitors to interact with art and technology installations that run the gamut from art to games.
We collaborated with artist Zack Simpson to produce this interactive shadow projection. Stand still for a few moments and an edge detection algorithm leads butterflies to land on your shadow. The exhibit was replicated by more than 50 venues nationwide.
Hold hands with a a friend, cup your arm, or get creative and use your hair to catch falling sand in a variation on the edge detection software produced as part of an art and technology installation by Zack Simpson.
