Researching the condensation of multiple technologies into building enclosures, student work explores the possibility of storefronts that watch you, respond to you, and allow you to interact with them. Using the storefront of LACE gallery and the stars in the Hollywood Boulevard “Walk of Fame,” this installation re-thinks the new urban and technological setting to provoke interaction and capture motion and internet data through a full scale illuminated, plastic prototype.
The November 13 event features a presentation of all three Superficial Superglow prototypes.
Funding is made possible by the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture Arts Forum grant, a UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design Charles Moore Traveling Fellowship, UCLA Center for Embedded Networked Sensing and cityLAB.
