“Trailers” consists of a computer, monitor, a webcam, speakers and custom software that uses 2500+ images from a collection of movie trailers. The viewer sees his or her mirror image being switched back and forth to characters from movie images surrounded by their scene. The viewer’s face is captured in real time; its size and location on the screen is determined and matched to a series of images stored in a database. Short, almost abstracted sound samples from those scenes accompany the stream of images.
