Under Scan at Trafalgar Square

Next week the Trafalgar Square North Terrace will be covered in the world's largest interactive video installation. It's going to cover an area over 2000m squared. Two projectors will cover the area with over 100,000 rays of light so that anyone who walks through the space. As a person enters the area they will be detected by a camera and tracking system and a series of video portraits will be projected onto their shadows. It's going to make for some interesting photos I think, I'll be sure to take some and they will be uploaded here next week. The Under Scan project is designed by electronic artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer

A concept sketch is shown above and below is a photo of the installation in action
