INFINITE FRAME: P0RTRA1TS 016

Justin Young's avatar Justin Young

INFINITE FRAME is an interactive digital video and still portrait generator with infinite output possibilities. The installation uses exhibit patrons as the subjects and conductors of live art. Participants create a video portrait in the automated video booth, and the video appears at the control station. The control station is a touch screen and custom gaming controller which consists of 30 illuminated push buttons and slide potentiometers. The controller enables users to select their videos and play them back on a loop while manipulating sound, video, and background art in real time with a seemingly infinite number of effects. Unique art works can be saved on the fly by pressing the large green button on the controller. When pressed, the project prints free 4" x 6" archival stills of their favorite video frames. P0RTRA1TS 016 are the curated bi-products of using the installation. The portraits along with the interactive portion can be exhibited in various ways depending on space.
