Art work made by collective squirming of bums on seats
Squirmart is a cinema based idea to
entertain patrons during the period
the movie starts, when they are settling
into their seats.
Each seat is equipped with a "squirming
sensor" that translates the pressure and
transmits both colour and brightness to a
small, corresponding area
projected on the main screen. This image
is composed of a series of large pixel
blocks that equate with the layout of the
cinema, and can vary in colour and
intensity in direct response to the
of weight and position on the individual
On a busy night "Mexican waves" of
and light would be comparatively easy to
achieve, but letters, and text could also
created with some co-operation, enabled
block of seats acting together. On a
quieter night, use it to flirt with someone
whose seat is "blinking" for attention at
the other side of the screen.
By the time the film starts, everyone
should have squirmed themselves into a
comfortable position, ready to
on the unfolding drama of the movie.
