Replica



Replica is a performance using live image processing to explore how the awareness of time affects the perception of self-image. Patterns unfold creating a dialogue between the performer and her representation, bringing the contrast of control and authenticity into question. See more;

The project was developed in Processing using the Most Pixels Ever library. Video was pulled from a Canon 5D Mark II camera using Canon’s EOS utility and CamTwist to communicate with Processing. To broadcast to each of the three machines powering the video wall, Daniel Shiffman helped us figure out a way to send and receive the images using UDP.

Replica was created by Jeff Howard and Alex Vessels for the class Big Screens at ITP. The project was presented at the IAC building’s 120 foot video wall in Chelsea, December,  2010.The project was performed by Claire Westby with the song “Lost in the World” by Kanye West.
