Star Stomp / Contact / Piezoluminescence
interactive floor installation of various names made along with Alec Schachner for the Story of Light Festival in Panjim, Goa, Jan 2015.
350 piezo (contact) microphones are placed underneath the floor, producing strange sounds as people stomp on them. Simultaneously a Kinect and projector face downward from the ceiling, tracking participants and projecting interactive graphics around their feet.
Thanks to Douglas Victor Gracias for the footage. Thanks also to the festival organizers and the many people involved who helped make it happen -- especially Jaya Ramchandani, Nash D'Souza, Shazeb Shaikh, Hena Najeeb, Sharath Chandra Ram, Richard Dias.
