Scalar Field: These Go To Eleven

Project information

  • Category: Digital
  • Project date: 2011

This work comprises an interactive, digitally projected, simulated environment. The faux landscape shifts between varying degrees of atmospheric disturbance (blue sky to thunderstorm) as viewers enter and exit the installation. The weather reaches its most extreme state when five or more viewers are in the space. The work is controlled by a webcam employing computer vision code. The computer vision is handled by the JMyron library in the Processing programming environment along with some custom code written specifically for this project.
