The use of the human hand is used to create works of art and architectural components. Within the age of embedded technologies, are we able to create such manifestations without touching a single surface? Could our bodies create more than visual gestures? Could these gestures be used to transform the notion of physical space?
Taking visual and social cues from graffiti, visible-light-sensitized luminescent nanoparticles react to the bodies movement emitting traces of the bodies presence in space. Through movement, one is able to draw or create visible poetic space in real-time.
After exploring the notion of utility at the scale of the body, the shift in exploration is now towards the scale of a building. Persistance of Vision(POV) technologies will be used to retrofit an existing decomissioned substation in downtown San Francisco.
