Work from The Protean Image and Process 18 (Object 1, 2).

“The Protean Image plays with the mutable nature of software. Participants modify the software by filling out programming cards that are inserted into The Protean Image Machine. The Machine reads the cards and makes alterations to the software as it’s projected onto the wall. The emphasis of this action is on the relationship between the visitors choices and the resulting changes to the software.

Process 18 is a text that defines a process and a software interpretation of the text. The text can be read in the Process Compendium.The text is displayed next to a dual projection surface. The process executes simultaneously on both sides. The mechanisms are exposed on the right and the process surface generates on the left.” – Casey Reas
