This was a collaborative artwork by the Flux Foundation, located in Oakland, CA. Carousel is an interactive, collaborative installation for the 2014 Project Zero Perspectives Conference at Lick Wilmerding High School. Inspired by the shared experience and wonder of the swing rides of childhood carnivals, Carousel uses simple materials, a strong color palette and playful interaction to create an immersive environment. In this space, participants contribute to a cumulative visual experience, reflect on inspiration from the conference, and engage each other in conversation.

The design was a tremendous success and we were asked to keep it up for two weeks longer than anticipated. It is currently being iterated and redesigned for the next unveiling at either Coachella or BurningMan 2015.
