By measuring the physical movements of the audience in the space using Kinect technology, the person in the projection starts to interact. The videos used in the installation make use of different cinematic techniques (full shot, medium shot and close-up. These are linked to the distance between the audience and the projection.
Entering the installation will trigger a random emotion. Moving forward and backward changes the intensity, whereas moving left and right shows different varieties of this emotion.
The interactive video installation ‘the Act of Notion’ is developed during the exhibition ‘Welkom thuis’ in Villa Zebra.

Um die Ecke2013
Every city is to some extent both a benefiter and prisoner of its own myth and cliché – and Berlin is a prime example of this phenomena. Berlin is known as a cosmopolitan, tolerant, open-minded, and exciting capital in which life is still affordable. At the same the city is characterized by it's rough attitude, edginess and even violent appearance. With Um die Ecke Selfcontrolfreak translates the city's ambiguous struggle with it's own myth and image into a video projection mapping piece. We see the artist chasing and being chased by himself. - curator Lukas Feireiss -
