Some two months ago we wrote about the grotesque, dream-Like video portraits by Donato Sansone. The latest (final) piece, a much longer one, includes new experiments utilising this fantastic technique.
Choosing the right type of camera for your interactive installation is one of the most important technical choices you can make in your initial planning phases. Making the incorrect choice can really impact how well your installation reacts to its victims and it can also impact its ability to perform robustly in a large amount of environments.
