Transforming Ideas is an interactive installation, commissioned by Experience Design (formerly Krent/Paffett/Carney) for the Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston, Massachusetts. The installation allows people to interact with quotations by using their bodies to reveal hidden words in the quote one by one. Users see themselves reflected in a video projection in front of a colorful cloud. Repeated exposure to any part of the screen rubs away sections of the cloud. As the user rubs the cloud away, words are revealed and set free to float to the top of the projection where they form a quote from Mary Baker Eddy’s own writings.
