One of the greatest things about this business is the variety of projects we are able to work on. Although Sticky Co. possesses some industry specific experience, we also like to engage in projects that explore interactive media differently. In the end, we are able to challenge ourselves, meet new people, and contribute the rich and diverse collection of art dedicated for the public.
Sticky was honored by the 2013 Bike Commute Challenge, tying for first place in the small business category. For the annual Challenge, workplaces across Oregon compete by riding bikes to work for the month of September, helping to reduce pollution and fuel usage, while giving employees a little extra exercise.
This year, Sticky’s cyclists turned in a perfect score, with every employee riding to work for every commute, all month long. Not even the wettest September in Portland history could slow them down. (Thanks for the 4.38 inches, Typhoon Pabuk.)
If you’ve walked past the studio lately, you probably couldn’t help but notice our brand new interactive signage. When people walk by the front window, their movement triggers the opening of six sets of curtains to reveal “STICKY,” spelled out in beautiful, custom ceramic letters, courtesy of our neighbors Mudshark Studios.
An interactive media installation created in collaboration with Mike Allison. A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into and create fire-like visuals and expressively play music.
The "Water Light Graffiti" is a surface made of thousands of LED illuminated by the contact of water. You can use a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or just to draw. Water Light Graffiti is a wall for ephemeral messages in the urban space without deterioration. A wall to communicate and share magically in the city.
