Jason Bruges Studio

The Studio was founded in 2001, "We create interactive spaces and surfaces that sit between the worlds of architecture, interaction design and site-specific installation art" (JBS)

The studio comprises of architects, lighting designers, specialists in interaction & industrial design & project managers. Their work ranges from large scale; builiding facades, public art; to interactive lighting; interior environments & products.

The latest installation from JBS is the virtual wall at Sunderland Station. The piece is a 144 metre virtual platform with moving travellers within a glass block wall. The wall has been transformed into a low resolution (755x15 pixels) video matrix. Behind the wall is a disused track & platform, hidden from view for several years, the wall has now become a virtual platform opposite the fully function platform on which travellers stand & watch the ghost-like figures moving behind the glass.
