EXPERIMENT 2

2nd public interaction experiment (demo): The Invisible string + Counter interaction

Aim: If they don’t react we will react to them and see if that would compel a reaction from them.

Method: If ignored we will interact with the user in various ways to see if they will react.

 

 

Procedure: Two people squat across a pathway with a distance of around 2-3m. One jesters the action of giving string and the other jesters taking string in sync motion creating an invisible string across the path.

 

If they walk slowly without noticing, the two people will stand up as to raise the string. Or if they walk past without looking, a sound will alert them that a string snapped.

Street art Stop-motion Video

Street art is largely an illegal art in most countries. The project was to create a safe haven for writers and artists. The problem with the movement was that the essence of graffiti and other street art might be lost. The excitement and the dynamic characteristic of street art will be erased if it is just located in the galleries and not out in the streets where they belong.

This video is just an illustration of street art community might be able to shift into a safer environment where training and planning can happen before they tackle the streets. A richer community will be able to develop when artists get the chance to meet and socialize.
