Spectator at the Heart of the Creative Processs

S Y N C H R O M Y by Olivier Ruellet :: January 9 - 23, 2007 :: Watermans Gallery :: the second work in the series "Sense Detectives" developed in collaboration with Thames Valley University.

Synchromy is an interactive video installation relying on motion tracking technology to place the spectator at the heart of a creative process: akin to a painting that would react to the level of motion expressed by spectators, Synchromy adapts its own visual dynamics to the rhythm shown by the audience, who develops in real-time a pictorial work of which they can start to understand the working and own it by becoming progressively more conscious of their gestures in front of the work, and thus explore new sorts of reaction between motion and image.

While at Watermans don't miss the chance to see the interactive installation M I R O R R O O M by Raylab at main gallery which is on display till 15 January. Mirror Room re-evaluates the visitor's image of himself/ herself and the relationship between technology, the body and space. Mirror Room was created back in 2002 and first featured at Extreme Computing exhibition that year and is collected here as a retrospective of Raylabs past playtimes.
