Park View Hotel


Session Title:

  • Zero One Residencies

Presentation Title:

  • Park View Hotel



  • Park View Hotel provides focused optical communications, or “shooting’; opportunities between the Park and the Fairmont Hotel, neighbors in downtown San Jose. Using devices mounted in the park, the audience can “light up” interior hotel spaces in their line-of-sight. In response, these interiors leak out their properties: onto the exterior of the building, onto other “properties” public and private, and into the park below. This work was developed in collaboration with Sun Microsystems Inc., Menlo Park, using SunSPOT® embedded technology, and is a residency project commissioned by ZeroOne San Jose and the Sally and Don Lucas Artists Programs at the Montalvo Arts Center.
