The Terrell Place is a skyscraper located in Washington, DC that includes media display that is activated by motion from people passing by. The displays are located in the common spaces of the building, encouraging the people walking through the offices to engage with the motion artwork.

The office contains three different displays that offer the motion media throughout the office, circulating between 'Cityscape,' 'Color Play' and 'Seasons' animated images. As people walk by the space, the displays detect their movements and alter the images accordingly. The scenes change simultaneously and never repeat -- even if the person walking by moves past the screen at the same time and pace each day.

The 'Cityscape' image integrates Washington's cultural landscape into the design, with animated cherry trees that are abundant in the area.
