This installation by rAndom International takes the design imperative left field, outside the box. Is it art, is it design? ‘Audience’ is an installation conceived by rAndom International in collaboration with Chris O’Shea. It consists of around 64 head-size mirror objects that interact with the audience based on a surveillance program that determines ‘who is interesting’.
“In this conversation with Raphaele Shirley, Hannes Koch talks about the piece – the concept behind, how it works, how people react to the piece, ideas for variations of the piece – and other topics such as the special nature of media art / design concerning hardware and maintenance, and future projects.
rAndom International’s ‘Audience’ installation has been awarded an honourable mention in the Interactive Art category of the Prix Ars Electonica 2009.”
