“Opto-Isolator” by Golan Levin and Greg Baltus is an art project that subverts the idea of the “spectator” into a reversal of roles for the artwork and viewer. It is design and fabrication by Greg Baltus of Standard Robot Company, Pittsburgh. Opto-Isolator was developed with support from Creative Capital and the Berkman Faculty Development Fund.
Among other forms of feedback, Opto-Isolator looks its viewer directly in the eye; appears to intently study its viewer’s face; looks away coyly if it is stared at for too long; and blinks precisely one second after its visitor blinks.
