In the installation Michael Jackson Pollock the viewer generates digital sound and image through his or her actions (dance) through the use of a camera motion sensor. Dramatic movement of the viewer creates and controls an electronic paint splatter on a wall (via a digital projector), resembling the work of Jackson Pollock. Simultaneously the viewer's actions start and stop the music of a Michael Jackson-inspired sound file. The slower the viewer moves, the fatter the drops of paint become while rapid movement results in thin spatters of paint. Michael Jackson Pollock was showcased to the public on April 30, 2008 at the Digital Arts and Animation Studio (DAAS), School of the Visual Arts (SOVA), to an audience of approximately 75 people. The students of the Cyber Art class choreographed a dance to demonstrate how to use the Michael Jackson Pollock installation, after the performance the audience members were invited to participate and interact.
