[WIDE] BAND NOMADIC CAFE
A+D Museum and various locations, Los Angeles, CA
[Wide]Band is an exploration of a continuous surface of light materials in a 600-square foot installation that encourages and requires guests to interact with one another while negotiating the space. The name is inspired both by the physical presence of the installation and by the broadband technology that supports the wireless internet access provided. As the surface loops around itself, creating floors, walls, and ceilings, users are drawn to the long table that punctuates the interior space of the loop where they can socialize, eat, or check their email. Nine-foot tall graphics on the wall spelling out [WIDE]BAND in skewed italics are revealed by painting the negative, interstitial spaces a light gray, and are rendered visible only by their interaction with the loop.
