Abstract
The campus of Ashesi University Collage has a unique architecture which creates a relaxing feeling for the people who work there or visit it. Even though this is true for most spaces on campus, there are some spaces on campus which have a few design issues like the confined spaces and the lack of natural light. This has caused a dull effect on the people using these spaces as they use them. The location being examined in this project is a staircase which has a low ceiling and little natural light. This problem has been addressed in this project by the implementation of interactive art which has proven useful in bringing excitement to the people using the staircase. This document describes the process of design, implementation and testing this artwork to evaluate its effectiveness.
