What is the role of the artist aura in the era of selfie museums?
The exhibition photographs the audience-participants and puts them literally ‘On View’ via a custom engineered system that integrates TouchDesigner, real-time facial recognition, machine learning, kinetics and capacitive sensors. While ‘On View’ is a seemingly non-digital environment, technology is embedded into the atmospheric backdrop at every facet of the experience—a nod to ubiquitous computing. In this presentation, the artists/ designers engage the audience in a conceptual overview of the work using immersive video, provide an interactive design outline, and detail the integration of technology with predictive choreography, scenic design, and lighting. Followed by a Q&A.
