Sniff (2009) by Karolina Sobecka at Tyneside Cinema

After dark, Thu 14 November 2013 - Sat 4 January 2014 (not Christmas Day and New Year's Day)
Shop window at Tyneside Cinema, Pilgrim Street, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Sniff was a playful interactive projection in the window of the empty shop on Tyneside Cinema’s ground floor on Pilgrim Street.

As you walk past the window, a computer-generated dog follows and responds to your movements, changing his behaviour depending on how friendly you are to him. 

The installation was created by US-based artist Karolina Sobecka, and the software development was led by James George. Tyneside Cinema is proud to be presenting this work for the first time in the UK outside of London.
