INTERACTIVE PROJECTION WALL (CONCEPT & INSTALLATION)
Format & Apollo Inc.
Movement Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Official Pre-Event.
Body Tracking via Kinect, Laptop, Projector & Projection Wall.
Installation at a 3000 Sq. Foot Film & Event Studio. Toronto, Canada.
By adding the element of interactivity through application & installation of hardware, a balance of focus between the artist and venue was established. The core framework of the application is found via the Kinect SDK, and was modified with the Daniel Shiffman Processing Library to determine a projection of the audiences' shadow - the shade variation being dependant on the distance of the individual from the motion sensing hardware.
Throughout the event, the members of the audience would intermittently open up their bodies to face the direction of the projection wall, while always returning their main focus to interact centre stage, where the controller was placed. The hardware was specifically placed to track from the front and project on the side wall to create a specific directional environment.
