ScrrenPlay was developed by Professor Elaine Biddiss, core faculty in the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) and Scientist at the Bloorview Research Institute, together with a group of design students from OCAD University led by Professor Geoffrey Shea. The installation consists of a pressure-sensitive floor comprised of 100 tiles. Calibrated from the microcontroller switches in the tiles, information is fed to a computer which then applies corresponding images to a glass wall from a ceiling-mounted projector. Anyone standing or sitting on the tiles can create elaborate, moving landscapes from the three rotating design motifs: flowers and bubbles, a forest blooming from a geometric grid, and abstract vines and patterns.
