Portrait, one of the first universal creative manifestations, traverses the history of art through the ages, techniques and movements. No wonder therefore that in this age of narcissistic technological triumph, it assumes new forms and offers unprecedented perceptions. This is demonstrated by the project Dynamical Portrait, an interactive installation that proposes to reflect on the phenomenon of the role of portraiture in contemporary society exploring at the same time, the images narration .
A portrait is no longer an image that represents an instant or the essence of an individual, but on the contrary is a complex visual system that technology shows us demonstrating its complexity. A real-time representation that evolves in detailed forms and provides much more complex and unknown information.
Dynamic Portrair combines sequentially but also randomly visitor pics. It could be mounted in a photomaton-cabin or in a exhibition room with two areas: Recording area where the visitor is captured and a projection area where the final results produced in real time are shown. Dynamic portrait could also be printed and send to the visitor’s email address.
Like in Eadweard Muybridge experiments, the installation is supported by the development of a technological capacity to make visible what our eyes could not see without help. In a world saturated by images of all our acts and experiences, Dynamical Portrait is characterized by little details of ourselves.
