Interactive art project comments on self-absorption on the Internet


“Take the Call” by Chicago-based media artist Sabrina Raaf, attempts to address the phenomenon of self-promotion and absorption on the Internet. The project monitors ambient sound levels in the space to affect the image of a large flag on an LED matrix that flutters to open and close a large eye (on the screen), that nervously surveys the room. The project was inpired by dozens of videos the artist found on YouTube of people filming themselves staring intently at the camera.
