Pictures of You is a permanent interactive installation, created for the opening of the Wits Art Museum in Johannesburg.
Growing out of the need for the museum to connect to the resident student community surrounding it, Digital Fabric and Pixel Project collaborated to create an interactive billboard on the museum's glass windows that presents a visual experience fundamentally generated by the interaction of that viewer.
The installation is rear projected onto 2 of the street facing window panels for a display area 5 meters long. It is viewed and engaged with from the outside of the building, visible to the very busy Braamfontein street corner and can be interacted with by any foot traffic that passes by.
Pictures of You was created in C++ using Cinder, and 2 synced XBox Kinect cameras are used for tracking people. This information is translated in real-time into a visual artwork that challenges viewers to comtemplate the surreal particle-based and ethereal reflections of themselves.
