This interactive piece encourages the viewer to identify unexpected grotesque qualities in video accompanied by audio, which otherwise could be described as beautiful. The tracking system is set up to recognize two figures within the space with infrared light values by the camera positioned above the gallery space. When participants enter the space, those who use their movement controls aspects of the video such as position, volume, and sharpness. Through the rich user experience contributed by visual presentation, the spectator will understand the function of the piece. This interactive video works at a unique intersection of narrative with film and video, music composition, and physical interaction. As a whole, our objective is to combine beautiful and grotesque elements to generate a surreal, interactive experience.
