How does one encompass the complexities of living in a city that's caught between New York and Washington DC? Even Benjamin Franklin, a hero of this city, spent most of his time in Europe. He did choose to die here, so I always thought that must have meant something. Edgar Read more

Philadelphia’s Interactive Art Exhibits of 2012 and 2013

Inspired by a post from My Modern Metropolis (an incredible blog if you haven’t yet seen it) and a trip to the Park Ave Armory in Manhattan for Ann Hamilton’s the Event of a Thread (see below), I thought I would look back on some of Philly’s interactive art installations of 2012.

1. Longwood Garden’s Light: Installations by Bruce Munro
This installation featured seven trippy large-scale outdoor light installations. My favorite was the Forest of Light featuring 20,000 illuminated stems that looked like blooming flowers amidst a dense forest. The other most striking part of the installation was the Water Towers, a collection of 69 symmetric towers made of two-liter soda bottles. Each bottle contained a fiber optic cable that changed color in relation to music that was being played throughout the installation. I don’t know what Longwood Gardens could do to top that installation.
