LUX_TRANSMISSIVE
What information do we generate by being in motion? By placing ourselves on networks? Through the use of surveys distributed to riders over several weeks, data was collected on attitudes, individual proclivities, distances, and other sociologies surrounding the Chinatown Buses. The data was then transformed into graphic geometries, referred to as ‘bodies’, through the use of generative parametric algorithms.  These ‘bodies’ were projected, floating, off the side of the Fung Wah Biennial bus using a narrow one pixel wide LED Persistence of Vision display.  This display must be in motion for it's images to be visible to the naked eye. The work was installed on three buses for three seperate trips to Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
