Teri Rueb's large-scale responsive
spaces and site-specific sound installations explore issues of architecture and
urbanism, landscape and the body, and sonic and acoustic space. She has used GPS
and wireless technologies in her work since 1996 when she developed her first
interactive sound installation, Trace, along a network of hiking trails near the
Banff Centre for the Arts. Trace used GPS to create responsive spaces, where hikers
could hear sound works.
Rueb has since presented her works worldwide
at conferences and exhibitions including Ohne Schnur: Art and Wireless Communication/Cuxhaven,
Germany, ISEA, SIGGRAPH, and Transmediale/Berlin. Her most recent GPS based work
was "Drift," an installation in the wetlands near Cuxhaven/Germany during
April 2004 at the North Sea coast.
Her interests include embodied interaction
and social computing, wireless and wearable computing, tangible interfaces, history
and theory of interactive art and technology. Rueb resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts
and is a professor in the Department of Digital Media at the Rhode Island School
