X-Ray Wall
Mar 2010 08

The X-Ray Wall is a project developed by UAT Software Engineering student Michael Lange and myself that evolved from projects from the Intro to Processing and Interactivity courses that I instructed. The installation consists of two web cameras recording activity on each side of a wall at eye level. The captured video of the environment from one side of the wall is projected onto the opposing side with a 15-second delay. This image is framed through the silhouetted images generated from the users viewing from this same corresponding side. This allows viewers to “cut”a hole into the space and time with their presence.

X-Ray Wall was installed at the Arizona Museum for Youth in Mesa from March through October 2010.
