"FloodPlain" is an interactive installation which focuses on collision and propagation of ideas in a networked world--for good and for ill. This artwork draws users in to play with a field of old books, and in so doing, instigates an image of an ecology (or battlefield) of ideas. By making users agents of propagation, the artists encourage them to reflect on the spread of ideas and the forces driving public thought in a networked world.
"We’re interested in how ideas ripple both inward within the imagination, the mind’s ability to connect and relate disparate thoughts and images, and outward to a social world of competing epistemologies." - Dave and Steve Ryan
