Ectoplasmic Scream, interactive video installation made in collaboration with Limbic Media of Victoria, BC. A Xbox 360 Kinect game controller is used to recognize participants face to control onscreen avatar head and the flow of virtual ectoplasm by opening and closing mouth. The video function captures participants likeness as surface of the extruded ectoplasm. Ectoplasm is a manifestation of a spirit via the body of a medium as practiced in the Spiritualist séance ritual ceremony.
