Chris Coleman "Taking Sides"

“Taking Sides” Collaborative interactive Installation made with Laleh Mehran, which used Max/MSP to drive the interaction and a series of high powered blowers that constantly shifted the cloth landscape according to the generated conversations. It draws from interpersonal and historically politicized discourse. Shifting landscapes between two parties reveal the exchange of ideas and control. The audience is able to take a position on issues thus reinforcing the dominance of one side.
