Lovera + Rojas — Contact 2010

The eyes of the viewer (which are being read by a web cam installed within a completely modular and recyclable box) are projected in real time within the glasses’ negative space, making the spectator part of our piece. To do so, we are using Modul8, an iCam, and a Mac Mini to run the software.

Optometry — Behind The Scenes

Simon and I have made a lot of progress with our installation and exhibit. The deadline is looming and we’ve been putting some long hours to develop our presentation and concept. The most time consuming part so far has been building the optometry installation.

Photography has always fascinated me. I’m that person with a hundred photos of every event, trip etc and while I don’t consider myself a photographer by any means, I nevertheless can appreciate some good photography (or at least what I find interesting). There’s a lot of great photographers that collaborate with derooted, and Simon’s imminent involvement with CONTACT has loosely inspired my post today. Its more inspired by the concept of non-traditional photography and showcasing it using new mediums. Stop Motion animation is certainly nothing new. However, what was once rather limited for the guy/girl at home has become far more accessible. All u need is a decent camera, a huge SD card, a great idea, some degree of computer skills are a plus but not necessary, and in most cases A LOT OF TIME ON YOUR HANDS!
