Talk To Me is an installation with a projection of human head avatar and it reacts to people when they speak to a retro phone as one part of the interface. The project’s concept is to reveal the real situations of people from different countries communicating with each other. Through my observation, people cling to pretend they understand what others say to them if they don’t actually. The interface then uses that character of human behavior into the interaction of people and the installation. When people are saying something that the computer can’t recognize, the projection avatar will respond in a specific preset that indicates the same real life situation.
It has been a fantastic semester, and I truly learned a lot from everyone in the class. Thank Katherine for all your effort this semester and other people’s participation in the class. Wish all you a good holiday!!
