Mexican Market (2011)

Interactive Video-Installation MAX MSP/Jitter, kinect video (13 min), closed-circuit feed. This piece, conceived in the spirit of telepresence art, is an installation about familiarity, and presence. A live feed video shows the life happening within their walls. When an American enters the store, the language shifts to make it recognizable to the foreigner, in this case the American foreigner. The observer alters the observed. But when the American is not there it becomes again a Mexican space, not recognizable by the foreigner. The interactive system allows the person in the gallery, standing in front of the live feed to be present without altering the space, transforming the gallery viewer in an unobtrusive participant.
