The October 2011 ART && CODE conference at Carnegie Mellon (artandcode.com/3d) featured a weeklong “festival as laboratory” hackathon dedicated to the exploration of new cultural applications of 3D sensing and visualization technologies. During this period, a group of 15 hackers, artists and researchers huddled in CMU’s STUDIO for Creative Inquiry to create new Kinect-based artworks and experiments.
In this session, Heather presents "Aurora Tent", a cocoon-like environmental installation in which the surface of a tent enclosure serves as a touchable, gesture-sensitive membrane for entertaining interactive projections. Software developed by Meg Richards in OpenFrameworks.
