Sensing YOU (2015), a constellation of illuminated “halos” beneath the 280 Freeway, welcomes pedestrians by changing color in reaction to their movements between SAP Arena and San Pedro Square restaurants.

Niantic Inc. has integrated Sensing YOU into the immersive real-world mobile game Ingress as an in-game “portal.” Players of the two in-game factions can alter the color of the art piece and virtually battle for control of the portal.
