This installation is a modern take on the Renaissance double portrait, two couples looking at each other in profile. Two large monitors depict a couple looking at each other. The conditions change based on hourly weather conditions and a sensor tracks who is standing in front of the piece. Based on the gender of the visitor looking at the piece, the couple’s respond.
The interactivity has been programmed to challenge assumptions about representational art and what it means to be human in a changing physical and cultural landscape.
