Waist Line 2004

Modified “lazy Susan” bearing, video camera, electronics, assorted hardware

Thanks to:

 

Waist Line is a custom manufactured device that was created to record panoramic video images. This device was designed to be worn at waist level. Incorporated into the design is a wide angle lens video camera. The camera is mechanically driven around the performer’s diameter. As the performer and the camera are set in motion, the camera simultaneously captures both a linear and circular perspective that otherwise could not be observed in real-time by the individual wearing the device.  

 

Exhibition History:
