9. Interactive Media Projects
Concepts: Virtual Musician, Balloon Pit, & Be the Wind
These projects are interactive media projects created for two projection mapping exhibits at SCAD's Atlanta campus. I created three pieces for the show. All pieces were created in TouchDesigner using an XBox Kinect to track body movements. In addition, for the first piece, Virtual Musician, Ableton Live was used to feed musical sounds into TouchDesigner. Hand gestures triggered the sounds, creating a virtual instrument. The second piece, Balloon Pit, was created using a physics system called Bullet Solver. The third piece, Be the Wind, used a particle-based system.
These pieces are quick doodles I created in my free time every week to teach myself new software and techniques. Some pieces are audio-reactive. All were created using TouchDesigner or After Effects.
This project doesn't have any comments yet.
