1. Abundance


    from Camille Utterback Added 588 1 0

    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.

    • Crossing


      from Camille Utterback Added 59 1 0

      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.

      • Encountering 'Text Rain'


        from Douglas Imbrogno Added 147 1 0

        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.

            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.

            • External Measures, 2001


              from Camille Utterback Added 57 0 0

              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.

                from Camille Utterback Added 61 0 0

                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.

                      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.
