[Wide]Band-Nomadic Café, Los Angeles, CA.

[Wide]Band is an exploration of a continuous surface of transforming materials in a 600-square foot installation that encourages and requires guests to interact with one another while negotiating the space. The name is inspired by both the physical presence of the installation and by the broadband technology that supports the wireless internet access provided. As the surface loops around itself - creating floors, walls, and ceilings – users are drawn to the long table that punctuates the interior space of the loop where they can socialize, eat, or check their email. The space that contains the installation is emblazoned with “[Wide]Band” in nine foot tall letters, whose affect shifts from legible to abstractly graphic as one moves through the installation.
