PhotoBiennale – Sites [Processing, MaxMSP]

Created by created by Beetroot, PhotoBiennale- Sites is a retrospective presentation of the Photobiennale Topos festival displaying 2330 works-sites by 266 photographers from 36 countries. Toogether with developing the visual identity for the festival, the team also installed an interactive table, inviting visitors to browse the works by using a physical bright green wooden frame element and positioning it over one of  the 63 photographer names. When the visitor points at a specific presentation with the frame, a webcam installed at the top of the table, is watching the position of the frame and a Processing-Max/MSP/Jitter based software begins the slideshow of the presentation selected, projected in front of the table. This gesture responsive system is an interpretation of that massive amount of works, that groups them on an intelligent grid system, makes the visual contact with each work more feasible and attractive to any visitor.

Installation was installed at the Photography Museum of Thessaloniki.
