[ISEA2006] Panel: Ashok Sukumaran – Park View Hotel

Panel Statement

Panel: Zero One Residencies

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.

  • Ashok Sukumaran, Bombay, India, holds degrees in architecture and media art, received art and research support from the India Foundation for the Arts and the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art Science and Technology in 2006/07.
