The Replenishing Body

An interactive video installation created in collaboration with Evian, The Replenishing Body consists of a grid of squares (5x5) which can each record a 1 second loop of film. Participants can create and orchestrate a giant composite moving creature, or simply a collage of moving snapshots by recording a close-up section of their body part. The grid starts empty at the beginning of the installation and becomes a constantly changing collorative artwork. Grids are periodically uploaded to a gallery which can be viewed on http://www.showstudio.com

TOKYO STYLE CLASH

TOKYO STYLE CLASH was a chance for Toyko’s most stylish to battle it out and find out if they were HOT or NOT? From the 14th until the 16th October, a roster of 9 photographers were set up in the front window of BEAMS' Harajuku store, waiting to take over 1,400 entrants portraits.

All of the photographs were then used to create an interactive game that was played over six weeks on SHOWstudio during October and November 2006. by a celebrity panel and the worldwide SHOWstudio audience, who collectively decided who really has the hottest look in Tokyo!!

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.
