For his senior thesis, Jeff Herrity’s art project required the use of a hidden camera that would allow viewers to participate with his art. With a seemingly difficult task, Jeff knew that Dropcam would be the perfect paintbrush for this.
His installation titled, “Focus Group”, ended up using four cameras. Each Dropcam HD was mounted to the top of an individual stand. The camera stands also had wheels on the bottom, which allowed viewers to move the cameras around the gallery and point them in different directions.
“Focus Group” was on display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and was featured in The Washington Post. Pictures of Jeff and his “Focus Group” can be seen below, as well as images via the four different Dropcams.
Here is what Jeff had to say about Dropcam:
“Choosing to use Dropcams in my work was a no brainer – they are ridiculously easy to set up and are very reliable. However, the best part was that I had four cameras on the same Wi-Fi in the museum and never lost signal. I’m already planning several more pieces for shows that will use my Dropcams. I guess the Dropcam is my muse.“
