Memorial for Catherine This piece is in progress. It is an interactive installation which will also have an audio recording (narrative) triggered by the same sensor that triggers the lights. The first person narrative will reveal the life and death of Catherine, a sex worker murdered in 2003. This series will be an ongoing memorial for sex workers who have been victims of violence. The first draft will be completed on December 17th, 2009 to coincide with the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers. Share → Tweet
Feedback from ICM class on my final: Use first person narrative for audio clip Alternative lighting using a clip lamp being shown from behind Use a halogen lamp from underneath Christmas lights en masse?

Perhaps print directly on it or put it right behind mirror Using a servo motor to move image farther away or closer to frosted glass front panel “Bar 98” has glass that changes from frosted to clear when it receives electrical charge.

I will be able to make a cut at any two inch point and rewire and solder to power and ground. The LED strips were pretty expensive at almost $20/foot. I purchased three feet.
I am interested in combining my new found knowledge base in computational media (Processing) and physical computing (Arduino) to create an interactive art installation for December 17th, The International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers. My initial plan has been to gather the stories and photographs (high res) of the murder victims of Gary Ridgway (aka the Green River Killer). I am also interested collecting images and stories of other sex worker victims of violent crime for this project. I am also looking for footage from December 17th events,... Read The Rest →
