Psycho (1960) Interactive Poster

An interactive poster for Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 masterpiece Psycho.

As part of a 1 week elective on experimental poster design, I chose to make an interactive poster for Alfred Hitchcock's legendary psychological thriller-horror film, Psycho (1960). The poster shows the Bates' mansion, home to the deranged Norman Bates and his mother Norma Bates, whose sinister silhouette is seen in the window.

Project Guide: Rupesh Vyas

Combining paper cut layers, arduino and light and shadow I tried to create an interactive poster showcasing the dark, sinister themes of the film.

The poster is made of 13 layers of hand cut paper with 3 lights:

- an LED strip that throws light on the poster from below.

- a strong backlight behind the poster.

- a single LED in the window which , using an Arduino, is programmed to light up on detecting motion and flickers irregulary- showing the silhouette of Norma Bates.
