Public art, Site-specific works, 20th century. Joan Brigham, with Emmett Williams and Chris Janney. Steamshuffle. “Public participatory work combining steam jets striking each 2 x 8’ glass panel on which original poems by Emmett Williams, written for this work, were etched. Pedestrians triggered the steam by interrupting photocell beams. Strobe lights bathed each panel at night. Sound score by Chris Janney.” Reference: http://joanbrigham.com/biography/.
