Pila Rusjan and Dejan Štefančič
Interactive Video Installation
This work was made as a practice of Arduino programming. Together with the co-author we wanted to make various patterens by moving water. Later this work became a part of my exploration of various forms of video as images in time. My goal was to produce an endless and everchanging video as a standalone object. The object became a sink with reflections of water on the ceiling. It has an ultrasonic sensor which through an integrated microcontroller triggers a servo motor to react on the user's distance so that the pattern on the wall is never the same.
