Commissioned for the 2010 01SJ Biennial. The theme of the Biennial was "Build your own World"
Plug-in-Play represents a playground of ideas related to how we engage our urban environments. By taking a number of objects (some existing and some staged) in San Jose City Hall Plaza and connecting these objects to the building facade via oversized theatrical plugs, we suggest a new type of environment wherein social interactions, citizenship, and personal activities are more dynamically reflected. Through the application of a projected environment on the facade of City Hall, the LAB at Rockwell Group is able to display both physical and virtual activity in the plaza. The resulting effect constitutes an attempt to create a more accurate representation of the vitality and complexity of our urban environments.
