Shared Destination

Interactive Single-Channel Video 
appropriated video, maxMSP, 2012

Abstract
'Shared Destination' (2012) is an interactive system wherein viewers interact with appropriated video footage shot by citizen journalists in the Syrian Revolution in which the individuals are documenting their own death. The video footage is activated on the monitor by the presence of the viewer based on their proximity and the duration of their stay. The longer the viewer watches and the closer the viewer is to the monitor the faster and louder the clips become. When there is no viewer present there is no viewable footage. The act of viewing activates the death of the author.  This project was produced using maxMSP, the microsoft kinect and appropriated footage.
