LightBridge is an interactive urban display to celebrate the 150th anniversary of MIT. The installation, which took place at the Harvard Bridge in May 2011, consisted of 10,000 individually-addressable LED lights that reacted to different elements of the environment. From visualizing wind patterns to creating engaging interactions with pedestrians, the bridge’s behavior evolved throughout the night.

I was drawn to this project because of its scale and impact on the landscape. I had created large scale installations before, but never as big or accessible as LightBridge. One of the main challenges in conceptualizing interactions for LightBridge was the visibility of the installation; the bridge needed to offer playful interactions to pedestrians, but also be interesting to watch from afar.

This project involved coordinating a large team of collaborators as well as managing the resources to bring the installation to life. From a technical standpoint, I developed a software library to address the lights over IP and created the sensors that tracked pedestrians across the bridge.
