Interactive Chairs The interactive chairs project was developed for the collaborative authorship project 'Embrace the Swarm'
presented as part of the Ars Electronica 'Unplugged' Festival in September 2002. The chairs project provided a platform displaying the interaction
between group members working on the other projects that formed the 'Embrace the Swarm' presentation.
Individual and group videos were triggered by moving chairs that represented project members towards the screen. The video that played was dependant on the
combination of chairs that were in front of the screen. An individual's chair would trigger their own video; however, if different combinations of chairs, representing members of
a particular group, were combined, different videos would play, showing the interactions between these people. With 5 groups containing a total of 9 people there were 16
videos that could be triggered.
