WHITE ON BLACK
Conducting Senses is an audiovisual experience that makes possible for audiences to interact with large projection mapping in city landscapes.
Two leap motion sensors are controlled by four participants. Each one controls both visual and sound elements. The sensors enable the capture of a wide range of the user’s hands movements, emulating the gestures of a conductor in front of an orchestra and giving a 3D spatial feel to the experience, involving the participants and audience in an immersive sensorial environment.
The visual and sonic elements were thought to enhance perception and explore in different ways the interaction between sound and light, people and architecture, using the site as a multidimensional canvas that reactivate these urban landscapes.
The result is an audiovisual piece that will be performed differently every time, re-signifying urban spaces and engaging public into making a large scale public art piece.
Interactive projection and soundscape, Friday August 21,2015 10 pm – 12 pm at Merihaka carpet pier, Sörnäisten rantatie 19.
