Academic research projects focusing on wireless sensor networks rarely live on after the funded research project has ended. In contrast, the Sense/Stage project has evolved over the past 6 years outside of an academic context and has been used in a multitude of artistic projects. This paper presents how the project has developed, the diversity of the projects that have been made with the technology, feedback from users on the system and an outline for the design of a successor to the current system.
