show description

By measuring the physical movements of the audience in the space using Kinect technology, the person in the projection starts to interact. The videos used in the installation make use of different cinematic techniques (full shot, medium shot and close-up. These are linked to the distance between the audience and the projection.

Entering the installation will trigger a random emotion. Moving forward and backward changes the intensity, whereas moving left and right shows different varieties of this emotion.

The interactive video installation ‘the Act of Notion’ is developed during the exhibition ‘Welkom thuis’ in Villa Zebra. The first version (v0.1) with the character Selfcontrolfreak was presented during the opening of the exhibition. In August 2016 v1.0 was presented with the professional actor - Nastaran Razawi Khorasani.
