ITP Winter Show: Part 2

Picking up where we left off earlier, here are some more of our favorites from this week’s ITP Winter Show:

Membrain
Stand in front of a globe, representing a “collective brain,” and your photo is taken. However the “pixels” that comprise your photo are actually tiny images of other people that were there before you. Scroll your hand down the globe, and it zooms out to show all the previous images in full view, as well as your own. Imagine this as a public artwork that can remember all its visitors.


Breath Note
Designed to capture the fleeting canvas of a fogged window drawing, this mimics it on a computer. Using face detection algorithm plus audio, it will actually “fog” up the screen when you beath on it then draw on it with your finger. Email to a friend as a nostalgia-inducing ecard.
Here and There

This video installation examines the porosity/instability of borders between private and public, self and other, viewing subject and object of contemplation–and makes you look like you’re in Ghostbusters. Sit in a movie seat and a live video feed projects you into a virtual audience in front of you as a semi-transparent image. Your image is saved and appears in other seats as other people take their turn.

How Much Water Do You Use?
A project that could have some real world benefit, this focuses on everyday use patterns improvements in water consumption. A dashboard sends signals to a visualization application that tallies usage based on measurements from faucets and knobs. Each input is mapped to the actual rate of flow, and the values are then represented on screen.

Anti-Paparazzi Fashion


Also useful (if you are Brangelina) is this purse that deflects photos–James Bond style. Hold the bag upright to “activate” it, and it will flash in response to a camera flash, obscuring the photo. While it’s not exactly airport-friendly right now, we hope to see this developed into a couture line of bags, as well as a version you can attach to ones you own.

You can see all the projects on ITP’s website.
