This thesis documents the creation and execution of an interactive art installation. Divide seeks to explore the relationship between the built environment and individuals within this environment. This exploration is viewed through a variety of “lenses,” including placement criteria, methods of display, and the power of authority as given or perceived by individuals. Methodologies utilized by architects and installation artists are explored throughout. I place emphasis on the process of creating meaning within a given built environment, thus establishing a place rather than a space. Illustrated within this thesis is the process utilized to create Divide. This process provides a means by which to compare a variety of existing research. This thesis discovers how and where to contribute to future research.
