Brightmoor Runway in Detroit

Posted: October 17, 2017

Brightmoor Runway transforms a section of a sidewalk into an interactive running, play, and exercise track. A modified radar speed sign invites pedestrians to test their personal speed limits from 3.0-19.9mph (in collaboration with Nick Tobier and Michael Flynn and supported by KaBOOM’s Play Everywhere grant).

Posted: June 8, 2016

Assocreation shows a first proof of concept of Internet of Shoes – an experimental swarm light installation and network for collective action – at the 22nd International Symposium on Electronic Arts in Hong Kong (May 16-22, 2016). This work is part of an ongoing research project in collaboration with Lab 11, an embedded systems research group at the University of Michigan.

The Internet of Shoes highlights our massive data trails that we leave behind when we walk in cities where everything – wearables, homes, environments, etc. – is smart and connected turning our bodies into nodes of a control and commodification system.
