The Bubble, an algorithmic artwork I have been working on with the artist and photographer Johan Nieuwenhuize, was unveiled today during the opening of the academic year at the The Hague University of Applied Sciences.
Students, as well as lecturers and employees (and you!) can still contribute to the artwork by interacting with Nieuwenhuize’s photos on our custom website. The artwork uses the resulting data to lure spectators with images that most students and visitors find the most attractive. Through an infrared array, the artwork is then able to estimate if people are approaching it, showing ever more challenging images the closer they get.
If you want to experience the Bubble for yourself, feel free to visit it at the HHS, where it will remain on permanent display:
