Danny Bertner’s Tracking Robots

 

T.I.M. (tracking interactive mechanism) is a kinetic installation by  artist/robot builder Danny Bertner. Using the open source development environment, Arduino along with Processing, Danny  uses an OpenCV library (open computer vision ) to track faces of the viewer. The mechanisms behavior is interactive, yet random when the audience “provokes” it  (i.e. stepping within range of a photocells value spectrum). Interested in our association with movement and how physical behaviors can provoke our innate behaviors, Danny is aesthetically inspired by early 90′s sci-fi animatronics and horror.  Watch a video of the installation in action after the jump.
