Project type: 1. Projekt
User flow is an interactive installation that mimics the look of a security line and blends itself into the infrastructure of an exhibition, rather than presenting itself as a content of it. The project is based on the research compiled during residency in China and published online. The installation represents the development of a physical security systems in our current times and questions the limits of that evolution as well as its general design choices. At first visitors should take off their shoes and stand in front of a security guard, giving access to their body. Next step is the inspection of the their intentions, where they have to pass a test. The third step is designed to uncover domination of the design and visitors' aptitude to comply. The final step is a metallic frame with a screen facing a visitor that first invites them to come closer, and as soon as they are close enough text on the screen changes to the requirement to take a liquid. Visitors asked to turn their head up and open their mouth as soon as they're ready. When they do that, a small amount of pure water is dispensed into their mouth using automated system build using 3D camera, face alignment neural network and a computer-controlled mechanical manipulator. Visitors who don't want to participate kindly asked to do so twice by a performer supervising the action, but as soon as they reject compliance, they can enter without passing through the whole installation.
