Window Gazing

Glass Curtain Gallery.  Interactive Media Installation. Chicago, 2006.

This piece was created using Director and an EZIO device for the physical sensors, which were activated by touchable objects arrayed before the viewer.  All the video clips were triggered by interactivity with the viewer touching elements arrayed on a sculptural table-window assembly.  The video itself was a rear projection through the assembly using a coated glass preparation on a repurposed window.

Sounds and video clips are grouped into narrative “chapters” telling the story of the loss of a loved one.  The sound and video groups are randomly played depending on what the user touches, so the user is participating in a free-flowing montage of appropriated “memory”.
