Context
  Work Details  
  interflow monitors the movements of the bypassers and conceives, correlatively, a changing reflection of both movement and context. interflow consists of 2 elevated steel frame-systems, containing 16 double faced high-grade steel-mirrors. Universal joint bearing facilitates a 360 degree turning of each mirror which is generated by 2 motors contained in the steel frame-system. The center of each steel-frame contains a digital camera. The steel frame-systems are directed toward 2 pathways leading to the hospital. The cameras monitor the bypassers movements and send the respective data to a computer, which according to that movement, defines angle and torque for each of the mirrors new position. The camera-computer-unit operates on pattern-recognition. The software generating the mirror-movement can be constantly adjusted to the given (and changing) conditions.
