“Cross-being: Dancers (spinning screen)” is a work with a movable screen structure. This screen can be spun by the viewers’ touch. The image of dancer inside the screen also spins together depending upon the speed and direction of the actual spinning. Each time the image of dancer’s movement also changes. If you spin slowly, you can catch out every detail of spinning sequence and look at the beautiful movement happening in a very tiny time by controlling the video screen structure. Video is designed to show the change of dancer’s gender from female to male, male to female when the spinning speeds up. Through this, I would like to provide another layer of experience, which is able to get in between the real and virtual space.

Mechanically, the base of the structure is composed of two gears of revolutionary shafts; one is connected to the screen and the other is connected to the 360 degree potentiometer. The spinning speed and direction are calculated through this potentiometer. A PIC micro-controller attached to the physical structure and send out the sensor values to computer via MIDI. The recorded video footage of performing of dancers generates in Max and Jitter application in real time.
