DVD player, data projector, frosted mylar + computer running Max/MSP+Jitter, firewire camera, two monitors, plinths. Variable dimensions, 2004.
A DVD loop is projected onto the exterior window. The image of a slow blink is used to focus on the human failure inherent within surveillance. Its slow, seductive pace counterpoints the frenetic setting of urban car traffic. Underneath the projected image, the title of the work in vinyl is adhered to the window surface. Upon entering the gallery, the viewer is confronted by a pair of video eyes on monitors in the building interior. Using Jitter software, the virtual eyes track and follow the moving viewer. This is the first responsive environment I have made using this type of technology. The title is from a 1967 poem of the same name by Richard Brautigan that imagines a utopian relationship between computers, humans and nature.
