Interactive Installations for All

Hi, I’m Mariah. I specialize in creating interactive immersive art installations that engage audiences by allowing them to actively participate and control the creative process.

Installations

Frog Technology

This is an audio visual piece mapped to a midi controller where the user gets to control 8 parts of a track and each part is also animated visually. The knobs modulate both the
sound and the visuals.

Reaction Diffusion Experience

A real-time replica of the miraculous reaction-diffusion algorithm, this piece models the dynamic interplay between chemical reactions and molecular diffusion. Inspired by natural phenomena such as fingerprints, coral, and fish markings, this installation showcases the algorithm’s ability to generate complex, self-organizing patterns. Made in TouchDesigner.

Colorful Catalysts

Let the waves of the Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction wash over you in this real time mimic of the algorithm. Interacting with the midi controller reveals different algorithmic variations. This piece has been projected onto the windows of the south tower of the University Bridge for the last few months to brighten up travelers’ evening commute, as well as making appearances at venues around Seattle. Made in TouchDesigner.

Spawn Scape

Jump into life under the University Bridge with this 3d model of daily salmon spawning counts, interact with the custom salmon keyboard to switch between last year’s Chinook, Coho and Sockeye counts, and control the school with a joystick, visualizing the total count for each day of last year’s spawn. Made in TouchDesigner.
