Digital Dallas/Tech Week interactive install: Dance Wall

I was commissioned by Digital Dallas and Tech Week to create two interactive electronic installations, which utilized interactive sound sculptures and OpenFrameworks driven interactive projections.

The second creation I made was an interactive rear-projection wall that used depth information from a Kinect to trigger fluid animations on the screen.  It could be customized to sense a larger field in front of the screen so that you could ‘dance’ in front of the screen to trigger animations.  You could alternatively set the proximity sensing to just a few inches in front of the screen so that it would act as a digital painting wall, allowing the user to draw brushstrokes across the screen with their hands.

I later installed the dance wall at the gallery opening for Jason Mehl during his residency at the Fairmont in Dallas.  The projections were accompanied by performance artist Tara Baker.
