Environment is Text-Rich: Framingham

Environment is Text-Rich: Framingham (2006) was a live video installation at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, Massachusetts. Projected onto one wall of the gallery space was a live video image of downtown Framingham, showing people in their cars and walking as they went about their everyday lives. However, the image was not static – the camera moved up and down in an awkward dance.

Upon first watching the archived video, the motion seems to be random. If one looks closer, patterns emerge. The robotic camera is panning and tilting to spell out letters; those letters form words; those words tell of a little known part of Framingham history.
