Experience Suraj Barthy’s Traces of Us at the Interactive Show coming up June 10!
“Traces of Us is a real-time interactive installation where a participant comes and places puzzle pieces to complete a puzzle in front of them. Each participant can place only one piece, and their face is captured with a camera and the part of their face that would be covered by the piece they place is projected on the placed piece. As participants place piece after piece, the puzzle slowly starts forming a face, with each puzzle piece being a part of a different participant’s face.
For example, if a participant places a piece where the right eye should be, their right eye would be projected onto the piece. If the next participant places a piece where the left eye should be, their left eye would be projected onto it. When another participant places a piece where the nose should be, their nose would be projected onto the piece.
The larger idea behind the project is that we are nothing without the traces of all the people we have met and never met in our life and that we are all connected across time and space.”
