Bridging art, architecture, and technology with Jason Bruges

Spur of the Moment: Episode 04

In this Spur of the Moment episode, artist Jason Bruges discusses his work, which sits at the intersection of art, architecture, and technology. Bruges designs art pieces at an architectural scale that respond to the movements of people around them, and he is one of eight artists commissioned to create art installations at Spur; his work will be featured on the glass bridge connecting Hydro and Terra.

Bruges hopes that conversation and even urban myths will be spurred by this new piece of art that lives and breathes using technology.
