Caro Coltman interacting with Reflexions at ArtCulture Resource Center (1983)
Reflexions always had a visual component. In the first version (1983) I had a second Apple ][ generating abstract textures and patterns in relation to movement. In 1984, I generated, again on an Apple ][, images of tetrahedra that rotated and flexed in response to your position in the space. I would present the video images on three monitors underneath the cameras. These images had the unwanted effect of making people very passive in the space. This seemed to be a common response to video screens before the age of ubiquitous video games and personal computers. (Next)
