Testing some tracking for an upcoming Harmonic Lab dance piece, "Maia." Right now, I'm taking the CoM (Center of Mass) of a user (via Processing simple openni) and sending these coordinates over OSC to both Max and Processing. I'm mapping, or rather scaling, the X and Z coordinates to an invisible bounding box (set in mm). The bounding box is controlled via Max, and stored as a global variable inside two Processing sketches (one for user tracking, the second for displaying visuals). The bounding box enables me to scale the X/Z coordinates in 3D space to a 2D projection screen. The projection displays circular light (Processing ellipses faded over time) and the mapping simulates a light halo tracking the user. Still some more tests, especially need a short throw projector to increase the bounding box of trackable space. (note: The dialogue in the video is directed toward my team members).
