CHAMELEON is back for a second time at Lighthouse!
Don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to interact with this innovative art installation and to get a behind the scenes look at how it works.
Why is it that one person can have the ability to âlight up a room'? How does a previously upbeat group become miserable?
Lighthouse is very pleased to invite Tina Gonsalves back in August for another two-week residency to develop stage 8 of the Chameleon Project an interactive art installation that responds to the emotions of the viewer.
During her first residency at Lighthouse in March 09, Tina worked with members of the public to test Chameleon's face reading technology. This time round, she will be testing new types of screens to display Chameleon in ways that go beyond the usual television and projector screens.
Over the two-week period, Gonsalves will work with latest collaborators, French artist group Experientiae Electricae, whose PIXY screens will be built on site, using light, electroluminescent paper to create a 3 dimensional screen. Once integrated with Chameleon's innovative emotion sensing technology, PIXY will transform Chameleon's video portraits into an immersive moving video sculpture.
