'Scanner I' is an interactive installation piece that captures viewers through a wiper that scans them into the digital space. Participants who are scanned will both see and hear the result, as the scanner that captures them also synthesizes their image into sound. Internally, the scanner seeks out interesting shapes it sees, and reacts with its own audible feedback.
The piece explores the human fascination with being watched, as the movements the viewers make will paint their own design to the screen. But it also addressed the fear of industrial, computational analysis of the human design as seen in facial recognition systems, hand scanners, and motion tracking cameras.
