Shiver

2012

PROJECT DETAILS

Shiver is work of architectural sculpture. Sensors in the ceiling of a 10’x10’x14’ constructed room recognize people’s presence. They react by changing the positions of delicate, curvy water currents running down the wall. Each time someone moves, the room clicks in response, and the rivulets change location to correspond to the body’s position in space. I worked with an interdisciplinary team in engineering, architecture, computer science, sculpture and new-media to build Shiver.
