Exploring Memory And Perception Through Flickr
German artist Matthias Dörfelt uses openFrameworks and images from the photo sharing service to create a remarkable installation.
German artist Matthias Dörfelt has created a unique installation called Selective Memory Theatre that takes the latest images from flickr and distorts and blends them to portray two projections simultaneously, memory and perception. The application was created in openFrameworks and runs both the projections on different macs that communicate through a small Protocol.
In his own words:
The installation consists of two projections, the perception and the memory layer. Both shell be explained in what follows. The perception layer represents the sensory memory before any priorities have been chosen. It receives the newest images from flickr (flickr.com) which get distorted, mixed and blended to persuade some sort of sensory noise.
