Installation, “In Search of Identity”

Made in L.A., Los Angeles, California, 2004

Description

I completed “In Search of Identity” as part of my M.F.A. (media design) thesis project titled, “Life Size” at Art Center College of Design. “Life Size” is a series of interactive installations and exhibits that explore human-scale interaction, environmental interface and display systems. The research, experiments and projects that make up “Life Size” create new modes of interaction, embed media into environments, and enhance both interior and exterior spaces and façades by making them respond to the motion of people moving in and through a space.

A fundamental aspect of the human-scale interfaces developed for “Life Size” is that they abandon the use of a mouse in favor of a dynamic range of sensors that allow the human body to be directly used as an interactive input device.

“In Search of Identity” is an interactive installation that uses a human-scale display system to allow visitors to explore the photographic work of artist Tatiana Parcero on multiple levels of their own choosing. By developing a unique projection technique and by embedding a diverse range of sensors into the physical display, I created an innovative way for users to be incorporated into and interact with the artist's work. The exhibit also includes a dynamic spatial interface that allows the user to explore a timeline of the artist's personal and professional history.
