POV, screen capture


POV is the abbreviated ‘point of view’. It explores the ideas of vision and perception from perspectives of an artist and a surveillance camera. The two projections display self-generated images reactive to visitors’ motion in camera’s field of view. This system generates curves between astronomic bodies, reflected by visitors’ movements into a kaleidoscopic surface. With this work, I explore the aesthetics of scientific imagery, complexity theory, and self-organized systems.
The mathematical origins of computational aesthetics translate into two autonomous generative systems, reactive to the same set of video surveillance data. While the left display generates axis of symmetry based on the recorded positions of human motion; the right display interprets human motion as a force, which creates attraction forces within this drawing system. The system displays these shapes when a visitor connects the starts with his or her motion in front of the camera.
