Light State Design
OverviewBiobridge is an interactive artwork inspired by the delicate microscopic ecosystem of Florida waterways and our human impact on it by evoking the effects of bioluminescent bacteria. LED light strips affixed to the underside of the bridge over the Riverwalk, are programmed to provide this experience as visitors move through the space. This artwork was commissioned by the City of Tampa for Lights on Tampa.
The goal for this project was to draw attention to a high traffic area along the Tampa waterfront. The artistic goals were oriented around communicating about how human impacts can effect ecosystems. Interactive technology that tracks and monitors the movement of pedestrians creates an experiential feedback loop.
