BIOSENSOR
Is the first public electronic artwork commissioned in Stavanger.BIOSENSOR
It was made for the main public transportation building located in the heart of the city. The commission was ordered by Rogaland county and was completed in 2005. The interactive handmade matrix of LED display was fully operating during the ten years it was active and present. BIOSENSOR was mounted in the window aisle of the main facade facing the city and the sensors triggering a dozen different animations was connected with the main entrance. Each time someone entered or exited an animation sequence was triggered for display. The animations was inspired of nature depicting pixelated imagery of flower bud opening, animals running, cells moving. A default animation pictured the animation of an ultrasound imaging of a human heart beat.
The work measured 3m x 3m and the double sided matrix  was visible from both inside and outside of the building. The matrix consisted of in total 800 LED lights. The electronic control system was made in collaboration with Jens Laland.
