CBS Interactive Art at Union Square

Maybe this has spread far and wide, but I’ve recently seen an interesting phenomena where technology allows people to interact physically with projected pictures.  The most elaborate have been games where you “herd” ducks into a nest (that’s located in the South Street Seaport), but when I was at Union Square, I ran into this one and wasn’t the only one who found it interesting.

The sign was normally just a blue background with a “CBS Outdoors” logo projected onto a tile wall.  Whenever someone walked between the projector and the wall, it would cause a cascade of “bubbles” as if the person’s walk caused cavitation.

Utterly of no use, it was nonetheless visually interesting.  But, then, I’m easily amused.  And I wasn’t the only one; there were about 3 of us watching as people did “the walk”.
