in conjunction to the japan austria year 2009, the installation “mashUp” featured an utopia like view of the streets of the city of vienna. by taking live video from a camera, facing a part of the famous “ringstrasse” and mixing it up with prerecorded video footage from real life shots and movies relating to the japanese culture, thus a virtual window develops itself, giving view on a city of mixed up architecture, inhabitants and feelings.
the installation was part of a group exhibition by the name “ca2jō” displayed in a glass cube, featuring entirely different artworks from 7 artists. “mashUp” was shown by a video projector on one of the glass doors facing the street. the live feed taking from the city scene was recorded by a camera that is connected to a windows pc. using the free processing software puredata made it possible not only to broadcast the feed to the projector but also overlay it with different footage located on the computers harddrive in realtime. the projection ran 24 hours a day, as long as the exhibiton lasted. the footage mixed in was displayed at random times, controlled by an algorithm, that took account of the current time of the day, though mixing daytime footage during the day and night time footage at night.
