Conducting Senses

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.

Tales from Frontiers

THRESHOLDS OF THE VISIBLE

Tales from Frontiers is an outdoor media performance consisting of facade video projection, soundtrack and live music performance.
The visual elements of the project come forth, change and hide in the continuum of lights, shadows and tones of the video projection.

When looking at our environment, does our perception capture the whole or just the details? The work invites viewers to form their own interpretation. Read more…

Among them especially the bees are important for the natural balance and environment. Without bees, nature as we know (or made) would stop to exist, since they are most active in pollination on which one third of the human food supply depends on.

Human Beeing, an ecological videomapping project by The Constitute, honors the bees by making their activities visible in the city in a large-scale projection. Read more…

Air Hunger

BREATHING LANDSCAPES

Air Hunger creates an interactive projection, where the breath pattern of a participant generates a landscape for a virtual character to move on. People can participate in the projection by wearing a wireless breath rate monitoring belt around their chest.
