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.
