“01” Interactive Online Video Installation by Ahmad Nadalian

“01” is the title of an interactive online video installation by Ahmad Nadalian for New Art exhibition in 2002 – A white screen measuring 3.45 x 2.45 cm, printed with an allover design of the digits 0 and 1, reflected the silhouettes of spectators who passed between the screen and the projector set up behind it. A webcam installled on the other side of the screen recorded the passing figures as a streaming file, displayed them on the monitor of a computer nearby, and placed them in a chat room. The 01 pattern within and around the silhouette of the human body highlights the virtual space forays of the contemporary world, conducted through the medium of zeros and ones.  The shadowy image of all museum visitors was recorded, and many visitors and artists liked to play a role after realising their footage was seen live on the Internet.

برای ایجاد این اثر يك پرده ی بزرگ به ابعاد 45/3. 45/2 را اعداد 01 پوشانده بودند. نوری که از پشت پردی بر روی پرده تابیده شده بود و مسیری که برای عبور بازدید کننده ها تعیین شده بود موجب می شد که سایه ی مخاطبين نمايشگاه با اعداد 01 تلفيق شوند و از سوی دیگر پرده دیده شوند. در مقابل پرده، يك كامپيوتر مجهز به Web Cam وجود داشت كه سايه هاي درحال عبور را ثبت و به شبكه ی اينترنت انتقال مي داد و در اطاق های گفتگو دیده می شد. بافت 01 در حریم و اطراف کالبد انسان، غالب بودن فضای مجازی را در دنیای معاصر را آشکار می نماید که به واسطه رسانه ی 01 عمل می نماید.
