1. The "Augmented Hand Series" (by Golan Levin, Chris Sugrue, and Kyle McDonald, 2014) is a real-time, interactive software system that presents playful, dreamlike, and uncanny transformations of its visitors' hands. See also this demonstration video: vimeo.com/golanlevin/augmentedhandseries.

    This video shows a screen-captured "debug view" featuring (clockwise from top right): the visitor's unaltered (input) hand; the transformed (output) hand, with an extra finger; the input hand's labeled contour and mesh; and an overlay from the Leap Motion controller that has been calibrated and aligned to the input hand. This video is silent.

    Developed in openFrameworks (OF), a free, open-source toolkit for arts engineering.

    The "Augmented Hand Series" (by Golan Levin, Chris Sugrue, and Kyle McDonald, 2014) is a real-time, interactive software system that presents playful, dreamlike, and uncanny transformations of its visitors' hands. This video documents interactions with the system by attendees of the Cinekid Festival in Amsterdam, October 2014.

    The installation consists of a kiosk into which the participant inserts their hand, and a touchscreen which 'reveals' their hand—reimagined and defamiliarized by various structural and dynamic alterations. The kiosk is accompanied by a large rear-projection which duplicates the smaller touchscreen.

    The Augmented Hand Series was commissioned by the Cinekid Festival with support from the Mondriaan Fund. Developed at the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University with additional support from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier. Concept and software development: Golan Levin, Chris Sugrue, Kyle McDonald. Software assistance: Dan Wilcox, Bryce Summers, Erica Lazrus. Conceived 2004; developed 2013-2014.

  5. Eyecode (Golan Levin, 2007) is an interactive installation whose display is wholly constructed from its own history of being viewed. By means of a hidden camera, the system records and replays brief video clips of its viewers' eyes. Each clip is articulated by the duration between two of the viewer's blinks. The unnerving result is a typographic tapestry of recursive observation. More information: flong.com/projects/eyecode/

    Presented and documented at the Beall Center for Art & Technology, UC Irvine, 2012.
    Cinematography: David Familian
    Video editing: Caitlin R. Boyle
