Installation commissioned for the INTERACT: Deconstructing Spectatorship exhibition at the Courtauld East Wing Biennal.
By approaching the wall, the participants spread glowing forms of dissipating bodyheat, that momentarily imprint their silhouette onto the room before gradually fading away.
The name Temp° not only elicits body heat or temperature but also the temporary and transient nature of a body's presence in a space.
The piece utilises the xbox kinect, a projector and software written in the Processing language to artificially simulate the body heat gradients and dissipation patterns based on the 3d depth map from the camera.
Music: Ariane Moffat - Hotel Amour (Dubbel Dutch Remix)
