You Were Here

Interactive Light Sculpture for RIversie BIA and STEPS CreateSpace Residency

‘You Were Here’ is an interactive light installation that uses motion tracking of people walking by to animate the lighted butterflies.

The installation alludes to the beauty found in loving something that is lost and aims to acknowledge a person’s presence, however brief it may be.

The installation is made of hundreds of individually lit butterflies.  Each butterfly was 3D printed and individually shaped to create a unique creature.  The hundreds of LED lights are controlled using the program, TouchDesigner.

It was made specifically for the site at 721 Queen St E.
