in this collaboration we wanted to imitate the function of an old TV that needed a hit to see it working and showing the clear video. we are using open Frameworks for making the glitch and blurry footage on our TV. so we used an ultra sonic distance sensor that changes the blurry effect of the footage from a webcam right beneath the TV. so when you get closer to the TV the footage fades away to plain white image. then when you hit the TV right on the Flax sensor on the side of the TV, the footage of the webcam starts to glitch.

the fixed blurry image that is showing the live footage of the webcam under the TV, that fades away when the user approaches the TV.

Next, is the glitch screenshot of the footage when the user hits the TV!
