Awake (2013)

Interactive Video-Installation MAX MSP/Jitter, webcam This piece is a new aesthetic representation and/or interpretation of the common sunrise image, where the brightness of the sun blinds us for a fraction of a second, and the beams shine in small bright flashes. We wake up and adjust our sight to the morning light. But we can achieve the same sensation, the same sun glint through a simple image. The image is manipulated in real time by the presence and movement of the viewer. The more people and movement there is in front of the image, the more the colors, contrast and brightness of image are modified generating a highly active and bright image or a very dimmed pixelated image. We can see that the sunrise sensation comes from the light more than the actual image.
