Artificial Tanning, 2017

MDF, mirror, webcam, projector and javascript programming.

200 x 150 cm

Artificial tanning is composed of a suspended mirror-umbrella with an interactive projection on the floor. The public can relate in various ways with this work. As you look up, your reflection is multiplied. As you look down, over your feet, a projection of yellowish vibrating circles that resemble the sun's rays. Through the Processing software, javascript code was created that interacts with the computer's webcam. Any movement (measured by saturation and brightness of the image) will be marked and recorded in the form of vibrating circles.
