"Lonely in the Crowd" by Jan Huggenberg
"Lonely in the Crowd" is an interactive installation that encourages human interaction. While some might argue that technology has ruined our interpersonal skills, this design project by Jan Huggenberg aims to boost communication between strangers in an urban space. Users detected by the installation are represented by groups of creatures, so when more people are present more swarms are created. When users get closer to one another and make contact, the different swarms merge to form various patterns and designs based on the type of user interactions. This actually looks like a lot of fun! Check out the video for this one after the jump.
