    Camille Utterback is an internationally acclaimed artist whose interactive installations and reactive sculptures engage participants in a dynamic process of kinesthetic discovery and play. Utterback’s work explores the aesthetic and experiential possibilities of linking computational systems to human movement and gesture in layered and often humorous ways. Her work focuses attention on the continued relevance and richness of the body in our increasingly mediated world.

      "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.

        Untitled 6 is the sixth piece in Utterback’s External Measures Series. The series began with Utterback’s attempts to create interactive paintings, and has evolved as she continues to experiment with the possibilities for hinging digital aesthetic systems to human movement. Utterback’s installations are generated by a set of software rules she writes. These rules react visually to movement in the installation space, and interact with each other to create dynamic live animations.

            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.

                Potent Objects playfully examines they way we ascribe emotion to inanimate technologies. Potent Objects parallels current research in 'affective computing,' in which the capability of sensing and conveying emotion is built into computing devices. The work suggests that, though our machines may seem to be becoming more like us, the truth could be just the opposite. Potent Objects examines the tropes of interactivity as metaphors for human emotion. This project was funded by a 2002 Rockefeller Fellowship in New Media.

                  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.

                    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.

                      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.

                      What are Tags?

                      Tags
