Recognition is an installation artwork that produces portraits
of the unions between project viewers and the acoustic presence
of the installation space.
The installation is divided into two stations. At the first station,
viewers of the piece may have their photograph taken by a digital
camera. The captured image is translated by computer into two
minutes of sound and played in exhibition space. This sound, as
well as the sound already present in the space, is collected at the
second station by microphone. The sound is translated back into
a digital image, and displayed by a video projector.
