TABL-ATURE
This installation will be exhibited at Piazza Gallery, Tokyo Designers Block 2003 from 10.09.2003 to 10.13.2003.


CONCEPT

TABL-ATURE is an installation, which maximizes material contact between human and computer, and minimizes the emotional gap between the two, through a reciprocal communication process of extended senses, thus leading to an active and voluntary participation of the user. The user uses various existing instruments to creatively act on the tablecloth put on TABL-ATURE, and through different sensors, TABL-ATURE understands the form, color and patterns by recognizing the user's behaviors. These visual elements understood by TABL-ATURE are re-interpretated to new visual and musical elements and return to the user. Through this process, TABL-ATURE understands the similarities between the intentions and un-intensions in the user's active creation behaviors or involuntary behaviors. It creates audiovisual outputs from this understanding and these outputs piles up on each other or circulate in a structure to re-create themselves and thus amplifying the mutual responses between human and computer relationship.

EXHIBITION BRIEF

TABL-ATURE's interaction has 3 proceedings, including the visitor's participation to the installation.

A. User's participation - making one's own tablecloth
The tablecloth, which is put on top of a table connected to a computer, is made by the participation of the visitors. This tablecloth is made of regular tissue or paper and no special devices are attached to it. But it can be made by different methods, varying from each visitor's intentions, freely creating the user's own design or patterns.

B. Image processing and creating media using computer
When placing the designed tablecloth on the table, where a camera is installed, the design is transformed to computerized images and sent to the computer. From the different usage of the camera and lights, various images are created and sent to the computer, where the software analyzes these images and creates sonic and graphic elements according to the images and finally gives feedback to the user.

C. Additional functions
The visitor may have the opportunity to participate in the interaction while TABL-ATURE is in process : by creating more elements to his/her design or even moving a coffee cup or other things on the table, changes will be made to the media following the same method.
