Eyecatcher

Interactive installation from Interactive Architecture Lab is a frame which follows a person around the wall, even ‘looking’ back at you - video embedded below:

Using a combination of industrial robotics and high power magnets, a seemingly inconspicuous frame on a wall, magically comes to life. Through a series of experimental films, photography and physical prototypes, the primitive effects of eye (and eye-like) stimuli have been investigated. The Eye Catcher project in its conclusion has developed a novel expressive interface where emotion recognition algorithms read audience faces and in-turn trigger the animation of a face formed of ferrofluid.

As people walk by, unaware of the interactive installation, out of the corner of their eye, they see an unexpected movement. Turning their head, they find an empty frame on the wall appearing to move towards them and as they stop in disbelief it positions itself to look straight at them. Suddenly from the murky black liquid sitting in the bottom of the frame, two primordial pupils rise up and seem to stare back at its viewer. A hidden pinhole camera in the frame captures the facial expressions of the onlooker and responds with a range of emotions crafted out of the subtle manipulation of motion cues. An uncanny and playful interaction is formed as expressions are exchanged.

There is also a video documenting how this installation was made:

THE DAILY PIC:  This piece by avant-ceramicist Jeff Schwarz is on display at Revision Space in Pittsburgh, and may look at first glance like a patch of old kitchen tiles. It may look that way at second glance, too. What makes it work taking in, and thinking about, is only revealed if you give it a sidelong look in just the right light: Embedded in very shallow relief underneath the tiles’ colored glaze is the barely discernible scrawl “SCHWARZ IS A FAG”.  Those words apparently descend from a similar phrase written by neighborhood toughs on an overpass where Schwarz grew up near Pittsburgh, but they lie just beneath the experience of most men who have embraced the arts. (I sometimes think that the machismo of some of modern art’s more famous mega-men, such as Jackson Pollock, Clement Greenberg, Richard Serra or Bob Hughes, was meant as inoculation against such suggestions of fifi-dom, which means that it was actually cover for cowardice – for their fear of the velvet-clad aesthete flouncing around deep inside them.) By laying the insult down at the very foundation of his decorative tiles–one the oldest and most fundamental genres in the “girly” craft of ceramics, which is one of the oldest and most fundamental of all the arts–Schwarz also lays it down at the base of all of our culture’s creativity. Schwarz isn’t gay, but he and all other artsy males are inevitably “queer”–set off at an angle–to the rest of our very straight culture. (© Jeff Schwarz 2014, courtesy Revision Space)

Seth Czaplewski: Ceramic Streets, 2009-Present

I view my work as crossover media. I usually abstract forms, which are then situated outdoor. Once placed, each on-site piece is documented as the primary archival “art object”. In doing so, my hope is that each work will ask viewers to reexamine and reconsider how art functions in their surroundings. I install my work in public, leaving it subject to societal forces and the whim of passersby. They are left to provoke thought, be transformed, or remain.
