What moves you? That’s the question three UCF graduate students pose in a new interactive art installation to be featured during Orlando’s 3rd Thursday Gallery Hop next week.

The installation, dubbed “CONNECTIONS,” is a 10-foot sphere illuminated by projections of images and videos about movement. It’s inspired by recent debates over creating alternative transportation in and around Central Florida, including the SunRail commuter train and Florida High Speed Rail. Jillian Perez Dudziak, Dave Moran, and Gary Seymour Jr. created “CONNECTIONS” as part of a semester-long class project with Digital Media Associate Professor Phil Peters, and they began showcasing the exhibit at local cafes and markets in April.Find out more from the UCF Newsroom.
