The viewer approaches a series of video projections which are computer-driven. The viewer types in a question and as soon as the return button is pressed a frame up from the web cam on the far right is frozen and analyzed for the points of the greatest change or movement.

This is done in a process similar to my previous works with pompoms we're various aspects of an image or artwork are highlighted as an indication of aesthetic or conceptual composition. The pre-coded image in database that most closely matches the stark pattern is the chosen image reading. It appears on this screen.
