Unfortunately our collaborator Transport for Greater Manchester were unable to host the site due to not having time for granting the particular permissions so our final session consisted of applying our proposals in to the eightth floor of studio. We set up a screen that utilised existing frame and then used a halogen light for illumination. The overall effect worked well as shown with myself passing through the light, The installation was left out throughout the day and we noticed people using the shadows as we designed.

Session five included making a scale model of our proposal to give a feel for how the installation would affect the site. We made a model of the site out of cardboard, and used a mobile phone to illuminate people and shapes to create interesting colourful shadows and effects.

Session four was spent refining our design, and sourcing a digital projector. We set up the projector in a dark room where we could limit the amount of light being let into the room, we then created images that would be suitable to be projected on to the site. We then tested by walking past, interrupting the light and creating a shadow on to the wall, creating silhouettes in the process.

Session three involved presenting our proposal to Transport for Greater Manchester. We talked to them about how we felt the people used the space, and how we can use their movement to create an interesting visual. We are yet to hear the winning proposal.

Session two consisted of thinking of ideas that would enrich the space and transform it in to an interesting an interactive environment. We decided on a proposal that uses coloured lights to utilise the movement of the people passing through the station, using mainly involuntary participation as time to interact with an installation is limited for the commuting public that pass though the station.

Session one included visiting Manchester Piccadilly and becoming familiar with how people move through the space and what existing interactions they have to the site. We then started to think of ideas that would suit the people traveling through the station.
