Combining the ideas of video games and surveillance, Electroland has created an interactive carpet for the entryway of this residence. This “carpet” is made of square tiles outlined in red LED lights that illuminate when a visitor makes contact. This initial contact then causes the other squares’ edges to light randomly, creating patterns to follow around the walkway. The exact sequence of the illuminated tiles of the carpet is then simultaneously reproduced on the façade of the building, which also displays a red LED panel of squares. A screen in the lobby facing the entryway reveals the synchronic activity of the exterior, allowing the public to see how their actions are reproduced on a much larger scale.
