Thursday, September 17 – Sunday, September 20
The Change You Want To See Gallery is currently hosting SNIFF: public interactive projection project by Karolina Sobecka, with software design by Jim George. The projection can be viewed from the sidewalk outside the gallery after dark from Thursday, September 17 – Sunday, September 20. The project is associated with the 2009 Conflux Festival.
As you walk down the street you are approached by a dog. He is on his guard trying to discern your intentions. He will follow you and interpret your gestures as friendly or aggressive. He will try to engage you in a relationship and get you to pay attention to him. Sniff is an interactive projection in a storefront window. As the viewer walks by the projection, her movements and gestures are tracked by a computer vision system. A CG dog dynamically responds to these gestures and changes his behavior based on the state of engagement with the viewer.
