    • Potent Objects

      Potent Objects playfully examines they way we ascribe emotion to inanimate technologies. Potent Objects parallels current research in 'affective computing,' in which the capability of sensing and conveying emotion is built into computing devices. The work suggests that, though our machines may seem to be becoming more like us, the truth could be just the opposite. Potent Objects examines the tropes of interactivity as metaphors for human emotion. This project was funded by a 2002 Rockefeller Fellowship in New Media.

        External Measures, 2003 is the third piece in a series of interactive installations which hinge the parameters of dynamic compositions to human motion in the gallery space. This piece creates a hypnotic tension between presence and absence, mark making and erasing, human gesture and algorithmic drawing.

        • Artist Camille Utterback Discusses Her Exhibition at the Frist Center

          MacArthur Foundation Fellow Camille Utterback is an internationally acclaimed artist whose interactive installations and reactive sculptures engage participants in a dynamic process of kinesthetic discovery and play. Her work explores the aesthetic and experiential possibilities of linking computational systems, through her own software programming, to human movement and gesture in layered and often humorous ways. Utterback's work is featured in an exhibition, Camille Utterback: Tracing Time/Marking Movement, at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts through May 19, 2013. The exhibition presents four interactive digital installations, including the landmark work Text Rain (1999), created by Utterback in collaboration with the Israeli artist Romy Achituv. In this work, letters, words, and phrases from Evan Zimroth’s poem “Talk, You” cascade like discrete objects onto the projected image of a viewer/participant, to “rest” momentarily on heads, arms, and shoulders. This exhibition includes one of Utterback’s digital animations and a display of her recent public art projects that gives insight into her working process. Utterback’s artworks' significance rests with their activation of basic human responses: the pleasure at the sheer gracefulness of the animated images, the gratification at being able to participate in their unfolding, and the intellectual stimulation that comes from integrating abstract language with physical movement to posit a new level of communication. This exhibition was organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts and co-curated by Frist Center Chief Curator Mark Scala and Curator Trinita Kennedy.

          • Encountering 'Text Rain'

            An encounter one day in July 2013 with the video installation 'Text Rain' at the 21c Museum Hotel in Louisville, Ky. This engrossing 1999 video installation piece using projection software is a work by Camille Utterback and Romy Achituv, currently installed in the elevator lobby of the 21c Museum Hotel in downtown Louisville, Ky. The alphabet cascade of letters cleverly form lines from a poem by Evan Zimroth and the letters drop onto whatever human shape is picked up by a camera in the center of the piece. In the words of the installation wall plaque: "'... Reading the phrases in Text Rain becomes a physical as well as a cerebral endeavor." Definitely a destination piece for anyone intrigued by the the possibilities of the intersection between art, technology and coolness.

              Untitled 6 is the sixth piece in Utterback’s External Measures Series. The series began with Utterback’s attempts to create interactive paintings, and has evolved as she continues to experiment with the possibilities for hinging digital aesthetic systems to human movement. Utterback’s installations are generated by a set of software rules she writes. These rules react visually to movement in the installation space, and interact with each other to create dynamic live animations.

                This interactive installation explores the possibilities of an projected kinetic sculpture that responds to people's positions and movements using video tracking. The kinetic sculpture is a projected image, but the positions, velocity, and existence of various parts of the sculpture image depend on people's positions and motions in the space in front of the projection.

                  Floating World is a dynamically generated animation commissioned for the South Lobby of the Mercedes House building in New York City. The 23-foot long installation continues Utterback’s exploration of the intersection between hand-drawn art and computer generated images. Inspired by linear scroll paintings and the site’s proximity to the Hudson River, Floating World combines painted watercolor strokes with specially designed computer software to create a flowing watery landscape across ten flat screen displays.
