      Color Commons is an interactive public art work where the public can change the color of the Boston Greenway Light Blades by sending text messages to them. Write any color you can think of and send it to the Light Blades number (917.525.2337) and instantly all the Light Blades will change to your chosen color. As a part of this project the Rascal microcontroller hardware and method are left behind for future artists to use and develop with. It is our hope that the Light Blades will become a platform for expression for many years to come. More about the technology behind this project can be found on our blog here : tmblr.co/ZrErEwbO2-tX And an in-depth discussion about the Rascal microcontroller that does the heavy lifting can be found here : rascalmicro.com/docs/project-light-blades.html

        Artist Jeff Briggs designed and sculpted a one-of-kind carousel for Boston’s Rose F. Kennedy Greenway. His challenge was to create decorations and rides inspired by the “land, sea and air” of the New England environment. Boston schoolchildren were also asked to make drawings of the animals they would like to see on the carousel. Their drawings served as the inspiration for many of the fourteen unique characters that Jeff brought to life, including a sea turtle, a grasshopper, a barn owl, a codfish and a whale. The finishing touch for each animal was a bright, kid-pleasing paint job by artist Bill Rogers, a longtime collaborator. Jeff is based in Newburyport, Mass., and earned a joint degree from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA) in 1971. http://now.tufts.edu/multimedia

          On the 8th of April 1961, the last steam train ran the mile-long stretch of what once was the Great Midland and Western Railway to Liffey Junction from the Broadstone railway terminus. The intervening fifty years has allowed nature to reclaim this inaccessible green corridor and it remains Dublin's hidden secret garden.

            Greenway is an innovative navigation system which significantly reduces CO2 emissions of cars and therefore protects the environment. The system orchestrates the traffic through a distributed routing algorithm in an optimal way. Ordinary navigation systems divert traffic jams onto smaller streets after they occurred, whereas Greenway actively prevents traffic jams. This is possible because Greenway reserves timeslots for cars on the streets. With this technique, Greenway knows the position of participating cars for any given point in time, including the future. The heart of the system is an optimized graph traversal algorithm that calculates shortest paths in a matter of milliseconds. The implementation includes many heuristics in order to reduce the complexity of calculating a route to nearly linear time. The Greenway traffic simulation software simulates various traffic flow scenarios in different congested areas. The result of the simulations: Using Greenway, traffic flow is twice as fast. Furthermore, a Windows Phone Application is used as a front-end for customers. The Greenway application is connected to the routing service, which is hosted using the Windows Azure cloud. Therefore it dynamically shows the optimal route to the customer. Generally, the Greenway service scales with the number of customers. Through switching computer instances on and off, a huge number of users can be processed, whilst costs for the technical infrastructure only incurred when the infrastructure is in use. http://www.greenway2012.com

                  Interactive musical sculpture "Wet Quintet." The sculpture consists of five bells, tuned in the chord of C, which are activated by the fountain and the public. The resulting music is a combination of the patterns of the fountain jets and the daring public. "Wet Quintet" was brought to you by the Rose Kennedy Fitzgerald Greenway (http://www.facebook.com/rosekennedygreenway) and the public artist Dan Sternof Beyer. (http://www.thehinge.net)
