The Null Device
A graduate arts student named Drew Burrows
a holographic virtual sleeping partner. Titled "Inbed", the installation consists of a bed with an infrared camera and projector positioned above it, and a computer which recognises the sleeper's position and projects one of several images of a sleeping woman onto the bed, so as to interact with the sleeper. Burrows says that the piece aims to "speak on the feelings of loneliness, affection, and intimacy", a point lost on the New York Magazine article
which beat this up as "weirdo student builds a virtual girlfriend because he's `too busy' to find a real one".
