Stories on Buses: An Interactive Look Beyond the Ticket Price

Tjaden Gallery

LaiYee Ho, BA '12 candidate in Information Science, will present an interactive installation that weaves together the disciplines of information science, art and music into storytelling triggered by loss. The installation was inspired by a personal experience of loss caused by a bus accident from NYC Chinatown, and subsequent research on bus practices and safety standards. Installation viewers are invited to interact with constructed bus-like music boxes.  Through touch and various interactive input, viewers can invoke sound, news clips, memorial clips, and personal narratives to play.
