An installation that investigates presence and location
#hardware #Kinect #camera #projection #software #Processing #graphics #installation
In this class project, my group and I investigated concepts of presence and time in a location. A user enters the room and becomes still -- perhaps sitting down or leaning against a wall. When they leave the room, a silhouette of their former position remains projected where they once were. The silhouette slowly fades over time. It remains for as long as the user was present; if they stayed in the room for five minutes, it will disappear after five minutes. This project uses Kinect and a standard projector. It was programmed using Processing.
