Nest, 2011

Nest is an interactive video installation dealing with themes of domestic chaos. Infared sensors placed throughout the gallery activate audio and video mixers; these arrays change in response to visitors’ movements. In the version documented here, this effect become progressively more intense as viewers approached the projection screen, but went silent and black at close range.
