In their latest interactive installation ‘Aperture’, ‘The Green Eyl’ wants to ask questions pertaining to the memory of an inanimate object, like a wall: does it retain any of the information it perceives? Obviously not, it’s a bloody wall! But ‘The Green Eyl’ would like to think otherwise. With its new interactive installation, ‘The Green Eyl’ would like to impart the quality of memory to the wall.
‘Aperture’ is an interactive installation made up of a cluster of single aperture modules with receptors and actuators. These devices are capable of expanding or contracting depending on the intake of light. When human beings are in the proximity of ‘Aperture’ the opaque body of theirs obstructs light from entering the interactive wall and the modules enlarge. This movement of the aperture modules is very similar to the dilation and contraction of the iris of the human eye with respect to light.
The shadows, made on this interactive installation, cause a certain visual shape to be formed on it. This is captured on its memory mode. ‘Aperture’, when set up on an outdoor facade of a building, can capture data from both sides. It can transmit information from one side of the wall to the other in the form of a series of openings formed due to light restriction. When there is no activity in front of the wall from either side, shapes captured by the interactive installation can be featured with the help of the rhythmic opening and closing of the apertures.
