On your marks, get set, go!

In a real-time video installation, five elite athletes compete in a daily race for continual improvement. But there is something strange about the rhythms of their footfalls and the cadence of their breath that begs the question: what is driving these people?

The answer is data.

Behind each human façade is a highly energy efficient building that controls each human avatar’s performance with data on the building’s real-time energy consumption. Building Run 2013 co-opts the language of sport to bring us in close relationship to the intricate workings of the built environment.

This is the race of the century: a race to upgrade our infrastructure to be leaner and greener. Each day of Building Run 2013 will see new obstacles, new winners and an infinite stream of insightful and poetic moments that speak to this very human challenge. Witness the fitness.

The Artist

Keith Deverell is an Australian video artist whose installations use site specificity to poetically comment on the current socioeconomic climate.

Building Run is sponsored by Investa Office and Deutsche Bank. Supported by Carbon Arts and Buildings Alive.

    What a novel idea! Imagine if we had to run faster and faster in synchrony with the consumption of energy in a building in real time! Very quickly we would know the consequences! Time to slow down,
    reflect and conserve
