Predictive Engineering, 2016
Client: SFMoMA & Julia Scher
Role: Technical Lead
Technology Used: Max/MSP, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut, Ableton, Node.js, Arduino
In 2015 Julia Scher was invited to create a third iteration of her surveillance installation series Predictive Engineering for the reopening of the SFMOMA. I oversaw the production and development of Predictive Engineering 3's modern infrastructure. For over a year I worked closely with Julia Scher to bring her vision into an updated form by incorporating current and relevant technologies.
My production oversaw the design, installation and operation of the following:
a custom surveillance network in and around the museum consisting of 12 surveillance cameras operated by the work
an automated A/V control booth to control the many sources of media streams used in the work
12 custom sensors to detect visitor's presence within the gallery
custom audio and video effects to process the many sources of media streams in real time.
a text message delivery service which allowed visitors to receive daily surveillance messages.
