Pedestrian Light

 
Ludwig Zeller (1981) is a Cologne based artist and designer who experiments in the field of interaction design and art. He received his diploma in audiovisual media at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. His work deals with aspects of urbanism, cognition and phenomena of network topology, topics to which he has contributed on a number of international exhibitions, conferences and workshops.

Pedestrian Light is taken from “Timeslots 2 - The Hong Kong Series”. A traffic fire in downtown Kowloon / Hong Kong is alternating its light between green and red. While showing red, the pedestrians have to wait and stand still. Cars and trucks are passing by. In this situation the people are visible because they are not moving. When the light turns green, people hurry and intermingle with each other. Therefore they blur into a complex mix of faces and bodies.

This video was created with a successor of the self-made timeslots algorithm that uses visual granular synthesis. Each frame of a video is resynthesized from hundreds of slits that are randomly picked from a range of 4 seconds of time. Through this process only static elements are visible normally, while moving objects are rendered diffuse and mixed.
