The One is the Shadow of the Other is an interactive photography piece. Using the Microsoft Kinect and software I designed this piece which performs very similarly to green screen. After initializing, the Kinect is able to see the silhouette of the user, and cuts them out of the background image. When no user is present, the software shows a single image of a highly populated road in front of the United States capital. Once users begin to congregate in front of the Kinect, their outlines begin to cut out another image on top of the background. This image illustrates a holographic textured image of a police barricade. The police barricade becomes larger when there are more people, or when the user's presence becomes larger, as when they are very close to the Kinect camera.
