Prontophot is an interactive installation, which captures visitors, archives them and mixes them to an endless videoclip. This all happens automatic and without delay.
The installation consists of a box containing severall screens and a button. Once the button is pressed, it captures a short videosequence of the visitor. These sequnces are stored and mixed to a videoclip, which reacts to the sound from the DJ.
During a VJ-performance we usually add a background to the prontophot mix, as you can see in the following quicktimes.
