interactive light installation by Christine Lyschik
first exibition 2013, "Gebaeude 27" Mainz, Germany
This media art project creates the illusion of a living creature, named Genariya, using the tools of VVVV programming, motion capturing and 3D sounddesign.
96 lightballs positioned in the shape of a tornado are creating Genariya's live space, which seems to exist far beyond the boarders of the actual installation. The light creature interacts with the moving audience, expressing its emotions like fear, sadness and happiness.
Victoria Söntgen's performance dance gives Genariya it´s natural movement, recorded via 3D Motion Capturing. For tracking the audience the infrared scanning system Radar Touch is used. By following the light with 3D audio panning Genariya's movements are emphasized.
