Interactive work for feeling time by compositing multi-vision and generating sounds

Abstract

With the progress of computer technology, interaction does not only break the relationship between the audience and the art work but also reveals a new digital aesthetic view. The proposed, interactive work uses multi-webcam to capture the multi-view images of the user and generate sounds by synthesizing sonic tones according to the dynamic moments of images. The main concept is to utilize the interactive installation to allow users to experience and feel the flowing of time by catching sight of vision in the interstices of time, as if reproducing <i>Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2</i> drawn by Dada artist Marcel Duchamp. The work flattens people's dynamic movements into a brief and condensed audio-visual field. Besides, the users can create a composite memory of themselves with the sound and video.
