Moey's Interactive Garden

The Interactive Garden installation is a visually and aurally appealing structure driven by proximity and emotion. The Garden is 24 feet long and supports various 3D-printed flowers that change color and produce music when someone walks by it. These self-illuminated flowers emit light from motion-controllable LED’s and generate music, creating a unique soundscape. As people interact with the Garden, a self-composed piece of music is produced, creating a dynamic experience that becomes more layered as interaction increases. The Garden blends arresting imagery with interaction, resulting in an intriguing audiovisual experience.

The National Constitution Center's new exhibit "American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition" opened today to critical acclaim. Moey had the honor of creating three pieces for the new exhibition: an interactive speakeasy door that invites visitors to try knocking on the bar door to see if they make the cut, a photo line-up that allows visitors to take their photo with famous gangsters of the era, and the highlight of the show Wayne Wheeler's Amazing Amendment Machine, a mechanical theater that tells the story of how this controversial amendment came to pass.

The exhibition runs from October 18th, 2012 to April 28th, 2013.
