His work

Hoberman work focuses on the interactive nature of people and technology. 'Bar Code Hotel' and 'Systems Maintenance' are two exhibitions that demonstrate this aspect. cite web |url=|title= Perry Hoberman - works |author= |date= |work= |publisher=]

Bar Code Hotel

Bar Code Hotel recycles the ubiquitous symbols found on every consumer product to create an multi-user interface to an unruly virtual environment. The installation makes use of a number of strategies to create a casual, social, multi-person interface. The public simultaneously influences and interacts with computer-generated objects in an oversized three-dimensional projection, scanning and transmitting printed bar code information instantaneously into the computer system. The objects, each corresponding to a different user, exist as semi-autonomous agents that are only partially under the control of their human collaborators.

ystems Maintenance

Systems Maintenance consists of three versions of a furnished room. An ensemble of life-sized furniture occupies a large circular platform on the floor, a virtual room is displayed on a computer monitor, and a 1/8 size physical scale model of the room is presented on a small pedestal. Each version is imaged by a camera (either video or virtual), and the three resulting images are combined into a single large-scale video projection. The camera position, height, angle and field of view are matched between the three cameras. By moving the furniture and camera viewpoints for each of the three rooms, visitors can match or mismatch the components of each of the rooms as they appear in the projected image.


Hoberman started at the Pennsylvania Academy of Art in Philadelphia in 1972, and earned his Bachelor's degree from Bennington College in Bennington, VT (1974-77). In 1978, he participated in an independent study program at Whitney Museum in New York. cite web |url=|title= Media Arts Fellowships|accessdate=2008-01-29 |author= |date= |work= |publisher=]


His installation "Timetable" was awarded the Grand Prix at the ICC Biennale '99 in Tokyo, and "Systems Maintenance" won a 1999 Prix Ars Electronica Award of Distinction. "Unexpected Obstacles", a retrospective survey of his work, was exhibited during summer 1998 at the ZKM Mediamuseum in Karlsruhe, Germany, and before that at Gallery Otso in Espoo, Finland. cite web |url=|title= The World Technology Network - 2004 World Technology Awards Winners & Finalists |author= |date= |work= |publisher=]
