Relative Distance
Mirror, webcam, flat screen TV, Max/MSP software.

Installation reflecting on disembodiment of self,
space and place.

An exterior webcam is connected to a TV positioned inside a gallery space. Sound from the live feed can be heard before video can be seen, which in itself, is framed with a distorted reflection of the surrounding room. Movement picked up by the webcam triggers synthetic sounds that augment the soundscape of the built urban environment.
