"What information do we generate by being in motion? By placing ourselves on networks? Through the use of surveys distributed to riders over the past several weeks, data has been collected on attitudes, individual proclivities, distances, and other sociologies surrounding the Chinatown Buses.
That survey data has been transformed into graphic geometries, which the artists refer to as ‘bodies’, through the use of generative parametric algorithms. These ‘bodies’ will then be projected, floating, off the side of the Fung Wah Biennial bus using a narrow one pixel wide LED Persistence of Vision display. This display must be in motion for it's images to be visible to the naked eye.
In addition, during the Philadelphia bus trip, the artists plan to survey the bus riders live. When the bus arrives at the destination, willing riders can pose for long-exposure photographs/portraits with their data ‘bodies’."
