JOHN BELLTHE UNITED KINGDOM
Usually only cold blooded animals such as snakes can see infrared. John Bell used modern infrared technologies to visualize heat-signatures in a life size ghost appearance, that turn out to be a reproduction of the visitor. Visitors are captured by an infrared camera, the produced images are directly projected in front of the visitors. The measurement of this thermic energy is called enthalpy, thus the name of this interactive artwork.
