"Over the years we have come to accept that public art is more than often a large piece of tarnished metal placed in a public space, yet over the last 5 years we have found that technology has redefined this stereotype. With a wave of mesmerizing and interactive installations, the landscape of public commissions appears to be permanently redefined. I am interested in examples of why digital installations are in demand at this moment in time and what their future holds".
