Laptop Reflections

An installation by Conditional Design / Luna Maurer, Edo Paulus, Jonathan Puckey and Roel Wouters.

During a period of 9 months we captured all our activities behind our laptops: Automatically, every 5 minutes the webcam took a portrait-picture, a screenshot was made and all our computer actions were logged in a database.

The installation presents all this data in different ways: 4 time-lapse videos (3:27 hours) of the portraits and screenshots with synthetic sounds reflecting the logged activities from the database, a 22 meter wall-print, a newspaper and a website

Synchronized to the laptop-videos there is a fifth time-lapse video with pictures from the Amsterdam skyline and synthetic sounds reflecting weather-data from the same 9 months.
