EgoMachine is a video installation designed for public spaces. It has the shape of a tower and is entirely build with old electronic devices. From the interaction with the viewer, the system emits multiple questionings with the different faces that appear on the screens. It combines images and sound in order to generate an unique experience for each visitor's interaction.
EgoMachine has already been in the Conjunto Nacional, República Metro station and the Boulevard Tatuapé Mall in São Paulo (version 1.0). After that, it was in the Museum of Human Rights of Mercosur (version 2.0); and finally Porto Alegre's bus station (version 2.2). Each exhibition showcased a new version with improvements such as new video content and enhancements in software and hardware.
Egomachine is based on the original text "Os Incomodados" by Fernando Bonassi, and runs on free software such as Linux Mint, VLC Media Player and NodeJS.
