What is Remoto?​

Remoto is an immersive interactive media art installation for which Pablo Monterrubio invented a new video system. It uses video headsets that receive radio signals transmitting live video from multiple security cameras. Remoto changes the viewer’s perspective from a centralized point of view to a disembodied one, giving visitors the experience of seeing themselves in real time from a removed perspective. Viewers contemplate themselves in a fully mediated space that shifts traditional notions of identity and self and destabilizes binaries such as viewer/viewed, here/there, individual/collective and human/machine.
