    Flourish is a 70-foot long site-specific artwork commissioned by Liberty Mutual for an executive corridor in the corporation's headquarters in Boston, Massachusetts. This unique piece combines artist Camille Utterback's signature interactive installation work with a new display method - projection onto multiple layers of custom glazed and sandblasted glass.

        Gathering is a dual-screen networked interactive video installation, commissioned by and permanently installed at the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum. In the piece, visitors see themselves reflected in one of two video projections. They can move, kick, group and bounce shapes which fall from the top of the projection. These shapes contain a live video feed from the adjacent projection area. Visitors in the pink space can manipulate the blob-windows that look out into the blue space. Likewise, users in the blue space can manipulate their windowed views of the pink space. Participants use their entire bodies to engage in a mediated communication between different spaces, exploring new types of visual and physical communication.

          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.

            Written Forms maps three separate texts, one each, into the dark, medium and light areas of a live video. When viewed from a distance this collage of words melts into the recognizable image of people in the installation space.

              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.

                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.

                  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.

                    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.
