As the perceived need for security grows, so does the need for surveillance. RealTimeWarper researches what it means to give imagery back to the public. In this case the visitor's bio-electromagnetic presence is picked up by sensors which trigger cameras feeding an editor. Real-time animations of those caught in the web of cameras are processed and projected, visualizing an invisible scenario of movement. RealTimeWarper can then be seen as a bio/electromagnetic triggering interface for audio/visual narratives. Before becoming an artist, Michiel van Bakel studied astronomy and psychology. Bill Spinhoven studied at the Technical University Twente and teaches since 2000 at the AKI Enschede.
