Since the 1990s, internationally renowned artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer has produced large-scale, interactive installations within the public space that live at the intersection of architecture and performance. Reliant on audience participation, these “platforms” are based on the artist’s concept of “relational architecture” that translates his desire to create social experiences and interactions by intervening within urban architecture via technologies such as robotics, electronic surveillance devices, or telematics networks.
