Nikolai Cornell completed “In Search of Identity” as part of his MFA (media design) thesis project entitled “Life-Size” at Art Center College of Design. “Life-Size” is a series of interactive installations and exhibits that explore human-scale interaction, environmental interface and display systems.
“In Search of Identity” is an interactive installation that uses a human-scale display system to allow visitors to explore the photographic work of artist Tatiana Parcero on multiple levels of their own choosing. By developing a unique projection technique and by embedding a diverse range of sensors into the physical display, Nikolai Cornell created an innovative way for users to be incorporated into and interact with the artist’s work. The exhibit also includes a dynamic spatial interface that allows the user to explore a timeline of the artist’s personal and professional history.
