Threatbox.us

Threatbox.us is an interactive installation with web surveillance interface in which a movie frame from a montage of violent excerpts from films, news media, and computer games “attacks” visitors via a robotic video projector and computer vision tracking system.

A public-scale projection moves in fluid patterns along a wall, sometimes meeting the ceiling, sometimes the floor, presenting a montage of violent excerpts from films, news media, and computer games. These scenes are intercut with domestic scenes of people passively engaged in mass media entertainment. The audio is immersive and violent.
