Interactive Photography (RFID)

Different elements of a multilayered photograph projected on a wall can be displayed or hidden using an interface made of tangible RFID-tagged objects and a table with an embedded RFID reader. But instead of simply "taking" pictures of these objects and presenting them on screen in a realistic way, the system projects their unexpected and sometimes surprising, symbolic interpretations in form of an imaginative, associative photomontage. The installation was presented during the Open Day of the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague in January 2006, to show prospective students what they can expect from the new full-time course Interactive Media Design, starting at the Academy in September 2006.
