Is the viewer of an art piece the only one entitled of having the right to examine, perceive and react to the artwork?
The blob is a concept work of an interactive piece. The blob in the piece lives its own life in the middle of the image, but when a viewer approaches the screen, the blob is attracted by the viewer.
The piece would ideally be projected on a wall with a near-throw projector or rear projected on a large canvas. The viewer is detected and followed with a Kinect – depth camera. The code is running on OpenFrameworks C++.
The work is based and inspired by a Processing/Java example by José Lozano @ Generative Hut.
