The project „Human Cloud“ is the result from an workshop called „ Dreidimensionales Gestalten im Medialen Raum“ with Prof. Dr. Franklin Hernandez Castro.

Human Cloud is primarily concerned with the human shape in connection with musical influence. The basic idea was a mirror image which is reacting to musical input.
A „Point Cloud“ is used to create a visual of the human shape in the third dimension.
Because of that its not just a 2-dimensional mirror image its a projection with variety of depthfield in it.
The movement of the single particles is controlled by musical input.

Everything was coded in Processing with the use of some libraries.
The mainobject of the installation is a "Microsoft Kinect", which has got a infrared camera to analyse the depthfield. The outgoing information is sent to the programm and finally presented on a High Definition Beamer as projectionmapping.
