Glories of Accounting

Subsculpture 5

"Glories of Accounting" is an interactive installation with a surveillance system that detects the position of the public in the exhibition room. When someone walks into the room, large hands appear on the screen automatically. The hands rotate along their forearm axis, following the visitor with the open palms always facing them. As more viewers enter the room, more hands appear, each one following a member of the public. Ultimately, the piece is a visualization of electronic detection, using a metaphor that signifies both distance (as in a "stop" gesture) and inclusion (as in the expression "show of hands").
