Toccata is an interactive on-screen installation based on the illusion of playing with the forces of a physical environment. When the visitor walks by, a textile reacts to movement, changing its form and giving the perception of modifying the equilibrium of the environment. An arpeggio of sine tones and noises is generated to give supporting feedback to the user’s physical movement and to make the user experience more immersive.
The application has been developed using openframeworks and Box2d, a 2 dimensional physics simulator engine. The 3d effect is an illusion created by connecting particles as well as overlaying transparency.
