VOID is a particle system mirror built in Processing. It uses computer vision to track the first face the camera sees, using that location to generate the origin of the visual. When no face is present the image fades back into the blackness. VOID is shown as an installation.

Conceptually this piece is about the relationships we form with our computers and how the gaze influences both entities. To look is to change--even the outcomes of quantum physics experiments are altered by the act of observing them--people are clearly changed by the way we look at our machines, but what does the machine feel as it looks back at you? VOID represents this space where our understanding, like the images it generated, will always be fragmented.
