Interrupt is an installation that takes Cambrian Explosion (another one of my projects, done together with Dennis de Bel) as a starting point. The conversation between the two computers is no longer limited to interacting between eachother, they have gained the the ability of sight.

When visitors walk in between the two screens they disturb the conversation by their presence. By showing that the computers know where the visitors are walking and changing the sound that is generated (read: changing the tone of their voice) they try to warn the visitors of. Like this the visitor becomes part of their conversation.
