Installations: The intersection of technology and the physical world


Art installations are the intersection where creative applications of technology meet the physical world. They challenge our perception of how we interact with a space and what our relationship is to that space. It can even challenge our perception of ourselves. One of the objectives of Computational Arts is to explore the use of microcontrollers and sensors to gather information about an environment and what is going on within that space. It also seeks to explore how Installations can also be a performance element within that space.
