The Art of Change, created by College of Performing Arts artist-in-residence Jean-Baptiste Barrière, is an interactive, participative, and generative visual and musical art installation. The installation poses the question, What needs to be changed in the world? The project presents historic film clips as well as new and evolving video statements and propositions that can be recorded and uploaded to 

In the installation, visitors explore and transform the videos with their gestures, creating an artistic and reflexive experience. The project is intended to encourage speculative and prospective thinking, establish an open platform for contributors, and build new narratives of change.
