Taking More Libertys

Taking More Liberty's celebrated the creativity and exuberance of London streets with a unique photographic interactive situated in the Carnaby Street windows of Liberty between 5 - 26th October 2009. The project was the sequel to the 2004 project Taking Liberty's; this time engineered especially to dovetail with SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution at Somerset House. Passers-by posed in front of the camera and the images were uploaded live to be showcased as part of the exhibition and in the above gallery.

DARE

DARE is an interactive installation piece designed and created specifically for the American Museum of the Moving Image in New York. The exhibition has run from June 19th until October 26th, 2003 in the Museums’ Warner Room.

DARE, the title of which refers to the Italian verb "to give" and the English verb meaning "to be bold”, consists of four touch-screens and a video projection. Each screen is interface and display: they require action as well as observation, writing as well as reading. At the opening, the exhibit was essentially a black canvas, awaiting and inviting visitors to be participants and to play along. On the other hand, on October 26th at the end of the show, it included stories told through a sequence of marks and images that recreate the past and the present of those museum visitors who in four months interacted with it. DARE creates its own documents, its own accounts of itself and its own records of those who contributed to its making.

DARE consists of four pieces: GRID and FACE, that relate to images, whereas DRAW and MODE relate to gestures and the creation of lines or marks. All pieces are playful; they all record user’s interactions onto a hard disk with a date and time stamp. These can all be recreated as a time based sequence.

I was responsible for Grid and Face which have since been used in various other situations.

FACE

Face is a piece that came into being as a proposal for the Venice Bienale. It has since been reworked and reused in various locations around the world (see DARE, Taking Liberties, Collette and Piacere). The core idea is simple. You take a photo using an automated camera and that image is then added to a visual list of all previously taken photo's which scroll through in rapid succession. ADD A BIT HERE THAT YOU WROTE FOR TH IDN BOOK.
