Description: Processing Gesture is a site-specific interactive installation comprising of nine microcontrollers, tripods, sensors, motors, video cameras, pencils, coat hangars, and sheets of drawing paper, as well as a computer and projector that serves as an elaborately layered immersive interface between the inhabitants in the space. Processing Gesture usus custom sensors to capture and employ conscious/ unconscious human gesture and spatial positioning as input to generate measured, artificially intelligent drawings on paper. The position and movement of the inhabitants within the space determine whether each drawing machine's arm is more active and agitated or calmer and more controlled. This gesture translation is being watched, captured, and projected on one wall in the space via nine webcams as real-time toggling video-segments. These video cameras serve to be the third self-reflexive layer of translated gesture, measured and magnified as encoded response.
