Thoughtballoons

2011

 

Located at the entrance corridor to Stapleton’s new Recreation Center, Thoughtballoons creates an interactive dialog with people as they wait for others.

ThoughtBalloons is a theatrical piece set into a black glass surround. Sensors locate where people sit and place a thought balloon above their head.

The texts are created with the help of the local community, including humorous conversations, informative repartee, both arbitrary and targeted statements. The thoughts are kept fresh and lively through workshops and a website.
