Innovative interactive installations

This week, I had a most enjoyable evening attending a talk by Jason Bruges. He creates interactive spaces and surfaces that sit between the worlds of architecture, interaction design and site-specific installation art. His projects range from large-scale building facades and public art to interactive interior environments and products. 
Jason is a pioneer of the in-between space which mixes architecture and interactivity and has subsequently paved the way for a new genre of design studios, artists, designer makers who occupy the hybrid architecture, art and design space. Recently, he has been recognized as one of ten world changing designers and is famous for using technologies and materials in a highly innovative way to explore the communication with the environment and people. 
I particulary like the playfulness of his work and the passion and enthusiasm of Jason himself is quite invigorating! Here are a few of my favourites:

His studio is currently working on projects for the Olympic Park. One artwork will be seen on one of the Stadium bridges later this year. The bridge piece celebrates the achievements of Olympic and Paralympic champions with an interactive artwork that challenges people to race against the speed of their sporting heroes. 
Usain Bolt, here I come!
