Les Mémoires is an interactive and functional installation, that invites to stand still at the passage of time.
Together with fellow students we where asked to come up with a concept installation that tells the time to the users of the new building of the Saxion University of Applied Sciences (Enschede). We ended up with a video installation that will allow people to be part of time.
A camera records the movement of the students, tutors and visitors and is displayed on a large screen. Every second a slice of the image will be frozen, and merged with the precious slices, adding up to a full minuteof time, 60 slices of memory. This results in a unique memory of time, a representation of what happened that past minute.
In this project I fulfilled the roles of Project Leader and Software Engineer. The software is written in C++ (using openFrameworks).
The project is awarded the TKT Award 2010 (best project from the Art & Technology course + audience award).
