Nosy is a robotic video camera, mounted on top of a steel post close to the sidewalk, tracks and captures passers-by and the surrounding landscape, which are then displayed in bitmap graphics on a white LED matrix behind frosted glass mounted onto three 13.5 m high towers. The title of the work points to the usual meaning of the word as something intrusive or inquisitive, but also alludes to the almost life-like character of the robotic camera.
A camera there, resembling a large nose, framed by two light fixture “eyes” and crowned by a “helmet,” videotapes pedestrians and projects the footage on three 43-foot-tall panels.
