[ISEA2009] Artists Statement: Brad Todd & Elie Zananiri – redTV, 2008

Artists Statement

Custom software, television signal, projection/installation

redTV (Brad Todd, conception/design, Elie Zananiri, code/implementation) is an installation incorporating a live TV signal, a small Television, custom software and a projected circular video image. The TV signal is fed into a laptop using a analog to digital video converter and is then accessed via the redTV application, using the OpenFrameWorks library for C++. The image is analyzed and any areas of red are then isolated and tracked in real-time, leaving behind a trail of image outlines, which gradually, over the course of several minutes, fade away.   teleshadow.net/redtv
