    Abundance is a temporary public installation commissioned for the City of San Jose, California by ZER01 – the Art and Technology Network. At night, Abundace transforms the city hall plaza into an interactive social space. A video camera mounted on the City Hall captures the movements of people in the plaza below. A dynamic animation generated in response to this movement is projected onto the 3-story cylindrical rotunda. Utterback’s colorful, fluid and delicate imagery creates a subtle subversion of the bold geometry of architect Richard Meier’s building – warming and humanizing its surface.

        Alluvial is a dual-channel interactive installation commissioned for a private home. Two overhead video cameras track people’s movements in the entryway below while Utterback’s software outputs two dynamic animations to the projection screens. A person’s body adds visual information to one screen, while subtracting from the other, and this interplay of positive and negative, additive and subtractive qualities builds as more and more people enter the space. This process of simultaneous accumulation and disintegration creates a temporary beauty, where the buildup of delicate grains of sand (or points of light), can easily be disturbed by the bolder graphics indicating another person’s presence in the space.

          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.

            Artist Camille Utterback, whose work is featured in the Frist Center’s exhibition Tracing Time/Marking Movement on view through May 19, 2013, discusses the creation and evolution of her interactive installations and other computer generated works. She explores how the creation of her works—which rely on cameras and computer code—is similar too, yet different from traditional painting, and how she became interested in computational systems to construct her pieces. She shares her process, as well as a behind-the-scenes looks at the prototyping and fabrication of some of her large-scale public works. Ultimately, Utterback muses on her path as an artist working between the worlds of traditional media and contemporary technology, and what this has taught her as a human being.

              "Aurora Organ" is a contemporary meditation on the possibilities of translating human presence into light using digital technology. Commissioned by Forecast Public Art for the City of St. Louis Park, Minnesota, the site-specific and interactive sculpture is installed in the 80 ft tall atrium of the Showplace Theaters, located at The Shops at West End in St. Louis Park. The piece combines custom software, full color RGB LEDs, touch sensors, and traditional sculptural materials to create an intriguing experience for theater-goers, where small gestures of touch translate to animated architectural-scale patterns of light.

                  In the Crossing installation participants encounter a still video projection of abstract black lines on a blue background. Moving into an area tracked by an overhead camera causes the image fragment and ripple in front of one's body. As participants move back and forth they may eventually cross a perceptual threshold - recognizing the warped and curving lines as the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge.
