- Our Part Idea & realization
Since our formation we try to realize a passion project at the year end. Last year we developed the visual cover for the musician Karlo Jurina This year Schau! is born. A series of interactive shop window installations.
Keep your eyes open for the next editions.
All Eyes On You
The series is starting with “All Eyes On You”, a bunch of different sized eyes who follow the passers-by. Simple concept, but the effect was immense. The passers-by loved it especially the kids react with the installation without any inhibitions.
We used a high quality projector and semi-matt foil from the hardware store to project the eyes to the window. They are rendered by a WebGL frontend using a shader sphere effect. The detection is performed by OpenFrameworks and the Kinect.
An Arduino controlled servo motor, pushing a button on the projector remote, is turning the installation on at 4pm and off at 11pm.
In this episode three-dimensional stripes stand up when people walk by and piano sounds are played according to the peoples position and speed.
Basically we used the same hardware setup, but we added amplifier and outdoor speakers to be able to play sounds.
The sounds are played by midi nodes which are send through a nodejs socket-bridge to Apples GarageBand.
The projection planes where cut from plexiglas and semi-matt foil was glued to it.
More Than Words
Animated by the 90ties-male-adolescence-dream Samantha Fox, the passers-by can change the words of a random sentence by “touching” the window. Also color and font are changing randomly. The visual outcome is supported by a machine voice generated by apples speech, speaking or singing the originated sentence with randomly selected voices.
A button called “Mr. Zufall” builds sentences by fortune.
We used the same hardware which we used by the episodes before. The frames are standard picture frames covered with semi-matt foil.
