The Smoke Machine

 

The Smoke Machine

 
 

The Smoke Machine was a collaboration with SextantWorks, Dirby, Dave & Gabe, and Nick Fortuno in which we created a series of interactive installations for a site-specific experience on a decommissioned Governor's Island ferry. Every corridor, car deck, crawl space, and hold of the ship was transformed into something that guests could interact with, experience, or solve. (Photo by Yoni Brook)

 
 
An illuminated dance floor is revealed under low-lying fog. The layout of the light channels was created as a nod to the shape of the shipping channels of the New York harbor.

A sound and light-based puzzle designed and built by Dave & Gabe. Pressing the correct pair of keys would transform the space within the ship's bowels by resonating her steel with powerful transducers, and would dim the main light and fade in ultra-violet lights that revealed the puzzle's solution.
