Stutterspot – Reactive Light Installation

Frame Seductions is an interactive work that plays with our expectations of the video frame by creating an immersive and surreal space that lies beyond the traditional borders of the screen.

The project explores the concept of looking outside of the video frame by tracking the head movements of people immediately in front of a camera-enabled screen. As people turn their head to the left or to the right the perspective of the video on the screen will change to follow their gaze.

StutterSpot is a reactive light and sound installation.

A computer controlled spotlight projects a cone of light when a person enters the space. It pulses and flickers based on a person’s distance to the light, symptoms
emitting a crackling, see
watery noises as the light changes. The closer to the centre of the light, phthisiatrician
the more chaotic the sounds become. It is an experiment in making light tangible, through sound.

the application to control the light was made using openFrameworks together with custom DMX code.
