  1. 8:66 for Trimpin / Open Space Gallery, Victoria BC 2012

This piece is an example of novel ways of controlling Trimpin's installation CanonX + 4:33=100 at the Open Space gallery. Each performer in the concert found a completely unique and individual way to perform the sculpture.

  1. Bodywaves / Japan Society, New York, 2007

This piece, an interactive sound and fiber-optic light sculpture, created in collaboration with Nobuho Nagasawa and Dale Stammen uses the person's body as a user interface. At the Japan Center in New York, it was one of the most popular installations in an exhibition called Making a Home: Japanese Contemporary Artists in New York, due to the simplicity of the interface and the integration of sensory experience. Bodywaves was remounted in a group exhibition at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC from December-March 2012, called "The Value of Water: Sustaining a Green Planet."

  1. Brush with Illumination

This piece, a collaboration (in which Schloss did the sound) with Buster Simpson, is a permanent piece of site-specific public art in False Creek, Vancouver. The sound component is created by sonification of tidal data over many months (sped up by a factor of several million). In this case, the audience can see and hear the computer-generated sound and image while on-site, via a streaming system that sends the media to any smartphone or computer, continuously updated from data transmitted from the sculpture 24/7.
