Kinecting Resonances - Kinect Projected Digital ArtPublished by admin on Tue, 15/11/2011 - 2:34pm
If you're into interactive digital art, this video should definitely fit the bill. The idea is to provide a 4 dimensional plane in which people can interact with shapes and colours projected onto thin layers of translucent material. The effect that is created is in intended to portray the flock of birds or swarming of insects all genera rated by human movement.
A key aspect of the installation is the use of a motion tracking system which allows a particle system to track people. Together with the video projection, people can experience multiple reflections of themselves. The inspiration of the particle system comes from flocking behavior. Flocking is dened by a group of birds being in flight. For land animals this is called herds and similarly you have shoaling for fish and swarming for insects.
