Table Tumblers are a series of objects designed to be rolled around the gallery. Each is outfitted with tablets that run a custom app or web page. Audio‐visual content running on the tablets is responsive to sensors within the tablets (tilt, direction, speed). Content ranges from generative animation to computer vision and mapping experiments.
In Tablet Tumbler Movie is presented as a six channel video installation. A 39-inch diameter tumbler object is used as a multiple-camera recording device, utilizing the tablets’ built-in cameras. Recordings are assembled into a continuous six-channel rolling point of view video that jump cuts through New York City-area living and work spaces. Participants navigate the tumbler through their own spaces and are given latitude for creative personal expression. Unlike traditional mapping services, the tumbler records its surroundings through a method of chance operation. It takes no stock in logical pathways, practical outcomes, or completeness of the task of mapping.
