North-South over East-West
London Bridge, London
"On the pavement where people usually leave only footprints, for the duration of the festival they left coloured light ‘shadows’ as evidence of their passing. The intent was to reawaken commuters, encouraging them to be aware once more of the joys of crossing the Thames on their way to work." (www.jasonbruges.com)
This Temporary piece used motion sensors to record all the pedestrians on the bridge and played it back as a matrix of colors on top of Tower Bridge a block away. Furthermore the sensors record individual bluetooth phones and assign each one a different color.
