Javanese wayang kulit is one of the most important performance traditions of Southeast Asia. The puppeteer indicates scene changes by rotating a leaf-shaped puppet. He directs the musical ensemble by hitting a metallic plate. The Interactive Wayang Screen allows visitors to control wayang video recordings by performing the conventional actions of the puppeteer: knocking displays video information, rotation changes the video selected.
This is enabled by electronic sensors and an Arduino board: IMU sensor to detect rotation, Infrared sensor to detect objects and a button to detect knocks. This project was first exhibited at the Tembi Gallery in
Yogyakarta, Indonesia in 2016. This project was funded by the Singapore Ministry of Education (grant number MOE2008-t2-1-011). Contemporary Wayang Archive (http://www.cwa-web.org).
