Joe Reinsel/Flint Public Art Project “Sliding Architecture”
Amplifier/ Flint Public Art Project’s installation in collaboration with Joe Reinsel for the 2014 ArtPrize incorporates indoor and outdoor projection mapping components to involve the public in light’s capacity to instantly transform space both at night on the building’s surface and indoors during the day. Using video cameras and projectors, Reinsel’s work, Sliding Architecture, places participants into interactive engagement with the built environment and shifts the building from a static material to a transient and movable object.

Flint Public Art Project organizes public events, workshops and temporary installations to inspire residents to reimagine the city, reclaim vacant and underutilized buildings and lots, and use innovative tools to steer Flint’s long-range planning.
Joe Reinsel uses new media, video, and sound to explore ideas about architectural space, time, and touch. His work juxtaposes minimalist conceptions of spatial experience and reformatted digital and video relationships in new media. His creative work continues to consider interaction and the environment. Each work investigates different facets of communication such as video work for public installation, collective storytelling platforms, and interactive gallery exhibitions. He is the recipient of grants from Baltimore Museum of Art, New York State Council for the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, Maryland State Arts Council, Baltimore City Office of Promotion and the Arts, and University of Michigan among others. Also he has presented work in eleven countries on four continents at venues such as Museum of Contemporary Art(Chile), Corcoran Gallery of Art, Ars Electronica, Location One, Centro Cultural de España(Mexico) , ZeroOne, and SIGGRAPH.
