Artist Statement:


    P2P is a 30-foot interactive marquee that hangs on the façade of a building. 125 light bulbs that comprise the marquee can be turned on or off with 125 corresponding switches across the street. By engaging in the everyday almost unconscious activity of flipping a light switch, passers-by can express themselves, forming any patterns they choose in the hanging web of lights.
