Dr. Glitch

Installation

Dr. Glitch is an interactive kinetic sculpture, responsive to the viewer’s touch. When the viewer touches the back of the sculpture, cyborg automatically begins to draw his memories on paper. The only functioning eye observes the people around. The memory monitor visualizes cyborg’s memories. He hears the sounds of the environment and synthesizes them.

Sculpture is made of clay, wires, wood and fabric. Interaction and movement is possible by computer vision algorithms, touch sensors, microcontrollers, servo motors and sound analysis and synthesis techniques.
