Abstract

An interactive installation, Trip Hazard forms a physical and immediate bridge between everyday inadvertent actions in public spaces and the potentially catastrophic consequences such actions could have in a digital space.
Having spent a number of years looking at continuous connections between the viewer and digital performer this research revisited the more commonplace interaction of discrete cause and effect; where a particular action in the physical world might trigger a pre-set event in a digital space. This new direction was to some degree influenced through previous collaboration with artist Gary Steven (Slade School of Art) and the piece Wake Up and Hide (Matt’s Gallery 2007): a video installation linking to the unintentional sounds of the gallery visitors to reactions contained within a series of video clips. Like Wake Up and Hide, Trip Hazard also looks at the inadvertent actions of the general public but concentrates on a proposed transfer of momentum between physical environment and digital space. As such it is places itself in a more choreographic context redefining the stage beyond the physical to incorporate both physical and digital spaces and embracing movement that flows between the two.
