OCR 01-25-2179

OCR 01-25-2179 is an interactive installation to materialize a boundary line. 

Excerpts from a confrontation letter addressed to the person I filed a complaint against is laser etched in decreasing font size. If the audience crosses the line (projected on the floor) to read the text, the light flickers and turn off. When they step back, the light turns back on. The time they last crossed the line is printed on the LCD display, which is also recorded on a SD card I collect at the end of the day.
In the public showcase, some audience are hesitant to cross the line, some stood until they read the entire letter, some read the letter out loud. A woman came up to me and commented they wished others feel what she felt interacting with the piece.
