From Selfie to Self-Expression

Event Projection: From Selfie to Self-Expression at Saatchi Gallery

Recently, we are proud to say, we added GSP Venues and Saatchi Gallery to our client list and have already been involved with a number of really exciting events and exhibitions at the gallery, including the new exhibition, From Selfie to Self Expression, which previewed on 30th March.

The exhibition is made up of several different pieces.  One of these, which we were part of, is Hello World! or How I Learned to Stop Listening and Love the Noise, by Christopher Baker.  In this large scale audio visual installation, the entire gallery swells with projected tiled webcam videos of people performing  to their camera, collected from the Internet.  Another clever piece called Selfie Seer, filters all selfies posted on Twitter and re-projects them in real time.

We were also involved in the Zoom Pavillion, by Mexican artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.  This is an interactive installation which consists of immersive projection on four walls, fed by 12 computerised surveillance systems.  The piece uses face recognition algorithms to detect the presence of participants and records their spatial relationship within the exhibition space.  The installation is in a fluid state of camera movements – with cameras constantly  zooming in on different visitors within the gallery and creating a non-stop changing animation.
