Critical Mass

Critical mass is a prototype project that was offered to Tel-Aviv city for the opening of its “art year” event in may 2012. It  is a video mapping of the walls of  Tel-Aviv art museum. Where little balls full down from the ceiling. they are blocked by walls. When the wall is full of balls the infrastructure collapses and the process starts over. The users may interact with the work by hitting the balls and sending them up. The idea behind the work  is the events that happened in our area in summer 2011. Where old systems seemed to collapsed as critical mass hit them but in reality same systems or worse are back in power as in this work. They just start over. The installation uses depth cameras (Kinect) to render the users silhouettes and to interact with them.
