Soma, Sudanchu

This view of the installation has a transforming projection of Sudanchu’s photograph at the center. The brilliant cyans and magentas pulsate like the circulatory system of a body but are in fact tree branches. Sudanchu’s Photography reflects his interest and study of the human body. Char and Sudachu collaborated on the projection which activates a pulse of tree branches.

Anna’s Webcam

Anna's Webcam

Anna Henson’s webcam is actually not one webcam but two webcams. One webcam is inside the body of the installation and captures the bodies that spontaneously perform for it. The performance is then projected onto a membrane in the front of the room and captured by the second webcam and projected back onto the chamber of the installation where the performance is happening. This interaction is happening in real time, and the performer can see the changes of light. The recursive nature of the interaction is tangible immediately spawning more play and performance.

One important note: We are not recording the participants through these webcams.

Close-up of Char’s projection on the walls of the installation. This figure was captured at CMU’s Panoptic Studio as a point cloud and manipulated by Char. Emily’s organic seats were crafted for the space with the intention of creating a communal space to observe the projections and have a conversation.
