    Submersed Songs is a sound installation that generates mp3 player remixes through the movements of four live fish. The animals' movements and the proximity among them work as a parameter for mixing and spatializing the audience's music tracks in real time.

    This system constantly mashes-up two different songs recorded by different users. The two tracks are submitted to different modification processes, building a real time continuity between the swimming of the carp fish and the levels of distortion- which can vary from an intense reverberation to a simulation of hearing underwater.

  4. No video here, just pure, simple stop motion. It took approximately 1,200 pictures.

    Taken in Osaka, Japan. Stripping down to my underwear to change multiple times garnered a lot of strange looks -- but it was well worth it in the end, I suppose.

    Music by Aphex Twin.

  5. Moon Theater is an interactive shadow-play installation exhibited during the Glow festival in Santa Monica. The festival took place against an unique backdrop of the historic Santa Monica pier and the Pacific ocean. An estimated number of 200,000 people attended the event. We conceived the project with the unique opportunities offered by a large scale public festival in mind.

    Moon Theater is designed to address issues of scale and social performance in a public setting. In the context of Glow, it is realized as an opportunity for communication and expression between members of a large crowd. Moon Theater aims to empower the participants with a broadened capacity for visual communication. The moon is defined as an urban screen. It is perceived as a unifying element; a common symbol for people across great distances. The piece successfully sustained a community around itself throughout the night, transforming strangers into collaborative performers.

    The software component of this project is written in Processing. It uses custom hand tracking code by Andres Colubri.

    Creators: Michael Kontopoulos and Nova Jiang
