Wandering in Shanghai

This is a video recording made with the computer built-in camera and customized code, which creates a real-time response based on the camera feed. The code generates lines and circles based on the movement and sound captured by the built-in camera and microphone. I was holding my laptop and walking in the streets, recording a usual day of Shanghai. The sound and movement of the surroundings were transformed into graphics and added onto the camera feed, which reflected buildings, vehicles, and people I encountered.

Screening at Shanghai Rockbund Art Museum.
