For our final project, we were asked to do a site specific scenario design. All of us were given the same site which is the Architecture faculty lobby at our university.  The goal is to seek a creative and interactive solution or add value to the existing site condition.

For me, I started with the goal to add a fun experience to the users walking by the Ar lobby as most of us are either tired from working late nights or overnights or even on other days, to add some fun character to the site.

 

 In order to achieve fun, I came up with the idea of tracking movements of people and mapping the movements with the help of projector on a panel kept along the walkway.

CASE STUDY # 1: MOMENTUM

ARTISITS :Schnellebuntebilder and Kling Klang Klong

” Momentum is an interactive framework to create synaesthetic experiences of sounds and visuals generated from a body’s movement.”

The idea to create a real-time analytics tool for movements 

    
 Based on the intensity and direction of each move, the GPU-based system calculates and visualizes the trajectory of over 2 million particles.

Consists of two-dimensional and three-dimensional motion tracking data (e.g. skeleton, optical flow, Kinect 2…)

CASE STUDY # 2: BODY PAINT

ARTISITS : Mehmet Akten

“Custom software analyzes live feed from infra-red cameras in real-time, and converts shape and motion into colors, drips and brush-strokes.” 

    
   
-Designed to work with any number of people

– scalable to cover small or large areas.

Simple Interaction – movement creates paint.

Size, speed, acceleration, curvature, distance all have an effect on the outcome strokes.
