TRAFFIC JAM SCENE a multimedia interactive "drive-in movie theatre" installation, wasfeatured at Northern Spark 2017 in Minneapolis, MN and at Jamestown Art Center's ArtSpark Festival in Jamestown, ND. 

Cars jam the highway, you’re running late and every radio station seems to be playing commercials—the commute can be a real drag! Feeling trapped by your routine? Why not band together with the other drivers and manifest an escape? Imagine a world where we aren’t isolated beings sitting in tin cans wasting time and fuel but rather creative entities embarking on a mission to save the world! Join us for Traffic Jam Scene, an interactive installation where you can take in an original superhero action flick from the comfort of our custom built cardboard cars. You and the other drivers play the most important role in this scene as you return to the real world ready to lighten your carbon footprint. All ages are welcome to this traffic jam turned drive-in movie theatre, though parental guidance is suggested. Show times are not set. Presentations run on a loop. Traffic fines doubled when workers are present.
