Imprints is an interactive video installation that tries to evoke the qualities of fresco painting. Some fresco techniques employed the creation of several layers, that were painted over long periods of time, in order to create the final masterpiece. These painting sessions were called giornatas.
The installation consists of a small room with life-size wall projection. Only one participant is allowed and when someone enters the room, the recording of a hidden video camera is triggered. On the video one can see not only his own realtime mirror representation, but also a temporal blend of all the people that have also entered the room.
The result is an additive video time loop that is triggered over and over again to record each person, that is represented by a different primary color. New colors are created by intersections and the final moving fresco is created.
