Interactive Art

Interactive Art (Fagg, A. Brown, Fierro) Bion is an interactive art installation that explores the relationship between humans and artificial life (Brown and Fagg, 2006). Bion is a sensor network composed of 1000 3-dimensional glowing and chirping sculptural forms. Each bion is a synthetic ``life-form'' consisting of a tiny computer, an audio speaker, blue light-emitting diodes, and multiple sensors. The network reacts to local interactions between visitors and a single sensor node with light and sound effects. A next step is to integrate ML techniques that will allow the network to change its behavior as a function of how the visitors interact with it.
