This project was made in collaboration with Jordan Backhus and Sergio Mora. Started as a study about physical movement translated into graphics, “Void” is an interactive art installation that manipulates light and physical space through the use of screens, computer-generated images, and sensors that creates a 3D experience. The installation serves to provide an ethereal and experiential interaction arena, in which the installation directly responds visually to the proximities and movements of its user(s). We too often forget the profundity of simplicity. The installation was made in an effort to stimulate emotional complexity and to offer an interactive, uncomplicated user experience through visual simplicity.
The installation is suggested as a single-user experience on a medium scale or a multi-user experience on a large scale. It is made with the use of Processing, a kinect, and 32 suspended tulles. The arrangement of the tulles gives the visuals the appearance of three-dimensionality in physical space to create a provocative effect. We have developed a small-scale version for a one user experience. Either/or can be implemented for the Winter Show.
