Claudia Jacques MMMI Mixing Realities: [Me, Myself, & Maybe I: Mixing Realities], 2014 Mixed media Interactive Installation – wood, acrylic mirrors, screen, computer with MaxJitter and camera.


“Mixing Realities” is an interactive instal- lation that uses cyberperception to create awareness of physical reality through confusions of real and virtual environments. The artwork requires user interaction, and is not complete until the user defines its final format. Jacques completed a research paper in the development of the installation, questioning how humans relate in our current world of technological distractions. “Mixing Realities” presents an enhanced reality using Max MSP/Jitter software in which the viewer can develop an awareness of his/her interactions in relation to others, as well as a deeper understanding of human communica- tions in our technologically saturated culture.
