window, tangent to time

Public interactive video installation, using multiple cameras, old televisions, concealed computers, and custom real-time video processing software, streetside in a storefront window. A gift to passersby.

window, tangent to time is a set of three “video-mirrors” that give participants an unfamiliar perspective of themselves; viewers perceive their present moment rotated into the dimension of time but not space.

The most cursory experience is like that of a funhouse mirror. Deeper reflection reveals a new way of visualizing and physically interacting with four-dimensional spacetime. Committed, engaged participants will notice that the duration of a moment slowly, glacially expands and contracts every 45 minutes, subtly altering the speed at which participants experience moments of time.
