SunRail-inspired UCF Art Installation Connects with Orlando April 15 and April 19
Orlando, FL. What moves you? As the SunRail Commuter Rail moves closer towards becoming a reality, an outdoor, art installation reflects on this question and what mobility means to the Central Florida community.
Created by UCF Digital Media and Studio Art graduate students, Connections is a 10-foot sphere illuminated with projections of images and text about movement. The sphere invites viewers at the installation to answer the question “what moves you?”. Viewers can use their mobile phones to text and project their responses onto the sphere.
The mission of Connections is to promote awareness about how the mobility of a community transforms the land and its people. The SunRail Commuter Rail proposes to bring another alternative to Orlando’s auto-centric community design that may increase community interaction and a more sustainable form of mobilization.
Connections pays tribute to this potential by aiming to encourage reflection, dialogue and interaction about movement in the community.
The installation will be featured at Dandelion Communitea Café’s Green Drinks event on Thursday, April 15 and at Stardust Video and Coffee during the Audubon Park Community Market on Monday, April 19. The installation will take place from 8 p.m. – 10 p.m. both nights.
Green Drinks is held on the third Thursday of every month at Dandelion Communitea Café featuring eco-minded food, drink and live music. It begins at 7 p.m.
The Audubon Park Community Market is a weekly gathering of local food, local art, and live music held in the Stardust Video & Coffee parking lot every Monday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Connections was created by UCF graduate students Jillian Perez Dudziak, David Moran, and Gary Seymour, Jr. as a semester-long class collaboration between the Studio Art and the Computer and the Digital Media departments.
