Live computer projection and sound
Joel Matthys

Tectonic Shift is a portal into ritual and communication across cultures. The computer is processing a live video feed, looking for patterns, connected blobs of movement, trying to make meaning from its input, just as we the observers try to make meaning of the protection. The location of objects within the frame trigger triggers sounds: synthetic wind chimes, African-style drumming and recorded audio from rituals across the globe. You are invited into a ritual space through the medium of the computer’s vision.
