Step through physical space along a movie’s time line…
As you walk toward the floating “window” / projection, you
can zoom-in from a projected building facade into different windows… and peek into your neighbors’ secret lives.
The installation involves back projection of a video on a translucent surface (“window”) and face detection using a live video camera. As a person walks closer to the “window” his detected face grows bigger, which indicates the distance of the person from the “window”. This physical distance influences directly the “location” along the projected movie’s time-line. Thus, the person steps through space are also steps along the movie’s frames… and he can scrub forward and backward along the video’s time-line.
