hwang kim: CCTV chandelier



cctv chandelier version 2 demonstrated by the designer

korean student of the royal college of art studying product design, hwang kim,
has created the CCTV chandelier. a virtual doppelganger simulator with the intention
that you can look objectively at yourself in a third person point of view. the interactive
installation has 12 CCTV surrounding and hanging near the viewer’s face attached to a
collar ensuring consistent point of view. this wearable visual system is connected to a
series of 12 individual tvs allowing the participant to see their own body or the surrounding
environment from a third person perspective. therefore, you yourself, viewer and visitor are
displayed as an object in the gallery.

check out his site for more of his process of ideation and construction of the final version.
