Thank you, Mr. Kiel, for expanding my mind as a child with sci-fi goodness. See you every July 4th and New Year’s Day.
Ripple was selected as an official Art Honorarium project for the 2014 Burning Man festival in Black Rock City, Nevada.
Ripple explores how information is propagated across loosely coupled networks with no central controller. The installation mimics the way ants communicate in the sense that information is relayed to the nearest neighbor only, as opposed to being broadcast to all participants. Where the ants use pheromones and touch as the message medium, Ripple uses infrared signals. The invisible infrared communication between the nodes is translated to visible light by each node so that viewers can get a glimpse of how information travels across a network when each node can only communicate with its immediate neighbors. Viewers may further interact with the installation by breaking the “line of sight” between the nodes there by blocking or reflecting the IR signals causing information to be lost or distorted.
Location: 9.45 / 900’, Black Rock City, Nevada, USA.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted this here. I’d like to see PBS Digital Studios continue to explore these kinds of topics. Their production values are really great.
