Self and Other



'Self and Other' is comprised of a series of glass sheets embedded with LEDs, which are layered to create a tall free standing volumetric display. When the viewer moves in front of the piece, integrated sensors mounted on the artwork detect and render their form in points of light.


As part of the studio team, my role on the 'Self and Other' project was to develop the software which captures and processes sensor data such that the form of the viewer can be rendered in 3D within the sheets of glass.

Data processing and filtering played an important part in the software development of this project and involved integration of number of data filtering techniques which were used to achieve the desired ethereal and delay effects present within the rendered image.
