Belugas is a participatory installation that transforms our experience of human interaction into another mode - one of visible light and movement. The installation investigates what Usman Haque calls 'the poetries of interaction': how people interact with each other and with a responsive environment. Belugas explores the potential of responsive environments to create surroundings that can act as mediating devices for social interaction.

Exhibited at WGTN LUX, Wellington, New Zealand.
L.E.D Zeppelin is an installation that transforms the invisible electromagnetic field into another mode - that of visible light. This takes place using the electromagnetic fields generated through mobile phone use. The installation aims to make visible something that is invisible, yet has become a major part of the contemporary landscape.
