Visual Art with Wireless Sensor Networks

The MISL group is currently collaborating with the Multi-Media group to create visual art with wireless sensor networks.

It is intended that this multimedia art piece will provide visitors with an alternative experience of environment, time, perception and pervasive computing while developing data visualisation and interactive display technology through implementation of a sensor network. Using the MISL sensor network and expertise from the MISL researchers, the space watches, monitors and records the visitor and stores their information, and then remixes previously captured data and subtly infuses it with the viewer's own experiences in the space

Galvin's work is concerned with memory and identity, traditional knowledge and folklore, the metaphor of journey and spiritual realities. These concepts are often powerfully expressed to contemporary audiences using multimedia. Using multi-media installation, this project deals with concepts of memory, identity and our relationship with time, environment and locale.
