Sensus Beta #1 is the result of a public art commission created in 2012. The installation investigates how technology affects and guides our daily lives as well as our behavior in society. It reveals both functional and playful dimensions and allows the viewer to interact with code while questioning the relationship between reality and virtuality. Through the detection of movement by a kinect camera and decoding QR codes, the performance offers a unique experience, involving the public activating the piece themselves. Fruchtnis uses the entire 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recorded in different languages in his codes. The recordings are activated by the public and played randomly by a computer.
