HOW IT SEES YOU_

WHAT
This interactive installation scans, deconstructs and reconstructs your moving body, creating its own digital interpretation of you — no keyboards, mouse or clicks involved!

WHY
Technology is more advanced than we think, says Jim Brady. He proves it by using the software from an old Kinect for Xbox to create an extra smart screen. It doesn’t need any of the classic interfaces, not even your touch, to create a personal piece of art.

WOW
The interaction between man and machine is fascinating. The more people participate, the more interesting it gets. A growing database of human body parts and postures provides the ingredients for a dynamic sculpture.

QUOTE
It’s a reflection on the digitisation of the human body.
