To be continued

“To be continued” – it is interactive media installation which picture is a changing digital “city” of silhouettes, an endless world of images of its viewers. The constant transformation is the main concept of the installation, reflected both in the visual component and in the essential one (different stages of the installation development are demonstrated at different events).

 

Every person who enters in the area of media installation "To be continued" participates in the construction of a gallery of digital avatars, constantly changing after the smallest movement of the viewer.

 

The installation was created on the basis of visual programming using machine learning algorithms (based on the Kinect contactless touch controller and Python programming language).

 

The installation is a visualization of the process of formation of digital space (which every day forms each of us, staying on the Internet); visualization of the continuous formation of a new digital environment in which modern man lives.

 

Making any action on the Internet, each of us leaves a digital trail. Getting into the area of installation, each viewer forms a special space, it is built based on his silhouette, rebuilding every second.

 

Thus, the project refers to many questions, including: "What digital footprint do I leave while on the Internet? What kind of digital environment do I create? Can I perceive a virtual copy of myself (in social networks) as an integral part of my personality?".

 

This media installation, as well as the digital environment, is in continuous variability, directly caused by the actions of people.

 

At the moment developed several versions of the installation.

 

The first version of the interactive installation "To be continued" shown at the "Science Fest" (2017, Saint-Petersburg) in the room with 360° projection.
