At present, there are a variety of design strategies for artists, designers and architects that deal with emerging field of new media and physical computing. The construction of moving and living buildings is arguably one of the most profound paradigm shifts in the creative discipline. Notably, the office of architect, Zaha Hadid and the Gehry Technologies of architect, Frank Gehry are some of the main streams that apply physical computing in architectural environments. Dan Goods, JPL’s visual strategist have been crafting various types of installations and a body of work that communicates the concept behind JPL’s missions. Amongst many of Dan Goods’s projects, Seeing The Unseen: A Public Exhibition Of Jupiter’s Interior is a project that simulates the atmosphere of the planet Jupiter.

The system control of the installation is inextricably interlinked with the technologies of physical computing. In the Graduate Media Design Program of Art Center College Of Design, designers explore the relationships between the human, environment and technology by situating computation in nontraditional contexts. My thesis at Art Center College of Design focused on studying new modes of interactive experiences by using I/O control devices to create an idiosyncratic installation that portraits new inscription of movements4 in digitally enabled environments. I plan to use my prior knowledge and experience of physical computing at Art Center for the Exhibition Of Jupiter’s Interior.
