Freequent Traveller (2001) is a live interactive installation by the artist Susanne Schuricht, developed in collaboration with Tobias Schmidt [1]. The interface consists of a hammock, whose movement is tracked by a custom-made hardware interface. While relaxing in the hammock one’s motion animates text across a projection-sail. The dynamics of this animation are perceived as intricately synchronized with, and connected to ones own bodily movement together with the hammock. The projected texts are short essays and excerpts about technology, mobility, home and identity. The installation is an instrument to generate awareness through rhythmic bodily experience. Interaction is considered as a process to create contemplation and change in outlook, to go beyond playful experience with an interface.
