  • Janet and I met at TED in 2011. Her sculptures had this wonderful dynamism.

  • I'm an artist who works with public space. I take soft materials and make shapes the

  • size of buildings.

  • Janet and I'd been talking about ways to create an interactive version of one of these sculptures.

  • And, Chris Anderson from TED reached out to Janet and said, this is a perfect opportunity

  • to create, potentially your largest sculpture.

  • This is the first time my work will be able to allow people to directly influence what

  • they see.

  • So, the installation first and foremost is this beautiful net sculpture in the sky, and

  • then the layers on top of that are added by participants, so we can have hundreds of people

  • simultaneously connecting with their mobile phones, and allowing people to present themselves

  • in this dynamic flowing visual that's on the sculpture.

  • The next generation. The next level. Its the next thing.

  • Everybody is using mobile phones to connect to our server and its using websockets to

  • stream directly into Chrome where it is then taking all that data and spitting it out to

  • another Chrome instance which is rendering all the the graphics in real time.

  • I'm fabricating in the United States on the West Coast in Washington State. Its an area

  • that has a long fishing industry tradition. The ropes that form this structure are made

  • of a fiber and its 15 times stronger than steel. Its being braided and we are then hand

  • splicing those ropes into this structure.

  • This has been one of the most challenging installations because its in the middle of

  • an active city. We've been installing this every night. Tightening up the ropes, lifting

  • this it into the air. There've been a lot of unknowns as we've been trying to get this

  • sculpture in place, everything from physically the net actually getting caught in a tree

  • on the way up and then plenty of time trying to untangle and lift it, to the tensioning,

  • to actually moving the sculpture 50 feet to the side at one point.

  • For years, I've been exploring how to let people become part of the artwork. And now,

  • with Aaron's interactive art, people can actually draw and paint with light. They become co-creators

  • with us.

  • It's been a real pleasure to see the delight and wonder on people's faces as they're participating

  • and collaborating together to make it work.

  • I never thought about using my phone this way, at all. So, today doing it? Unreal.

  • It's been such a treat to quietly observe people interacting and becoming part of this

  • work, painting on it. This is something you don't expect to encounter on the street. And

  • it's just something about having your routine broken up. Looking up at the sky. Just changing

  • your perspective for a moment.

  • We've spent so much time, and the team has spent so much effort making this a reality.

  • And then you get this payback of seeing people's faces and smiles and delight. I really like

  • the aspect that it's a very temporal and timely piece. It comes and then it's gone. Unnumbered

  • Sparks: this idea that we're all here converging on this space, having this beautiful experience,

  • and then dissipating.
