Visitors entering the space get tracked by infrared depth cameras. The bodies are transformed into contours projected as white lines together with the architecture.
Tracking data from the depth camera is used to generate midi values. Users can trigger sounds by merging their contours with the virtual architecture. The movement of the user and its relation to certain architectural features gets translated into sounds.
The augmented environment itself reacts on audio input. Sounds captured by a microphone are added as noise to the architectural line structure.
Human interaction creates a feedback loop between visuals and audio, bringing the virtual representation of the space to life.
The installation can be extended to an augmented audiovisual dance performance. Dancers explore the possibilities of being part of the projection and interacting with the architecture.
Multimedia art duo Martin Mayer and Quirin Empl specialize in interior and exterior 3D video mapping - an art form that uses the architecture, shape and conditions of rooms to project moving images, light or graphics on abstract surfaces, and thus creating an entirely new atmospheric space.
Space is commonly not perceived, but defined by and reduced to its functions. This is true in daily life and the arts, where spaces serve as a container for the reception, display...
