Descriptions & Essays
Glories of Accounting is an interactive installation with a surveillance system that detects the position of the public in the exhibition room. When someone walks into the room, large hands appear on the screen automatically. The hands rotate along their forearm axis, following the visitor with the open palms always facing him or her. As more people enter the room, more hands appear and each follows a member of the public. Ultimately the piece is a visualization of electronic detection, using a metaphor that signifies both distance (as in a “stop” gesture) and inclusion (as in the expression “show of hands”).
