Item details

FINGER POWER! was 2014 site-specific interactive installation at Seattle Center in Seattle, Washington for Bumbershoot festival in collaboration with LET'S (Andy Arkley, Courtney Barnebey & Peter Lynch). FINGER POWER! had six color stations: red, green, blue, yellow, violet, and orange. Each station had two buttons that controlled sculptures and videos of the corresponding color. When a button was held down, a musical loop was triggered which animated lights on the sculptures. There were 12 different musical loops of varying lengths. Depending on the combination of buttons pressed, a different song was created each time. The color stations also controlled videos of the corresponding color that appeared on the large pyramid and the circular side screens. Video of piece here:
