Installation with Networked Video Camera

This installation utilized a networked video camera situated in the midst of a sea of floating silhouettes of aircraft parts. A viewer taking control of the camera--either on site in the Museum, or from any web browser--could frame various views of familiar air disasters that "assemble" via video. The panorama below assembles a 360 degree view of the installation from the point of view of the camera. In the image of the monitor below, one of the six exploded images appears from the point of view of the camera.
