Keeping Up (With) Appearances
Interactive video (video camera, projector, screen, custom software, computer

Viewers walk past a camera, triggering motion-based video capture. The captured loop is displayed on a screen twice. On the upper half of the screen, the loop is divided into equal length segments. The segments are played in order, but the frames within each segment are played backwards. At the end of each cycle of the loop, the length of the segments increases. The lower half of the screen displays the loop reflected and played in normal sequence.
