The New School
The New School is a progressive university in New York City that takes a cross-disciplinary approach to education. We partnered with them to create an outdoor installation to bring their philosophy to life through a unique interaction: it takes two people to operate, showing what happens when ideas collide.
When two users approach the screen, they’re each randomly assigned a particle style and behavior that tracks the motion of their bodies. When the particle streams collide a reaction occurs dramatizing the spontaneous and unpredictable breakthroughs that happen when different academic departments collaborate.
