Acting Up - Richard Hards

Public Artwork, Deptford X Festival, London 2019

For ten days, the street lighting on Albury Street in Deptford was programmed to misbehave, malfunction, and perform for visitors, residents, and passers-by.

- Richard Hards

Custom software built with Max/MSP that lets the artist control the street lights in real time.
