ELECTRIC BIT is a Kinect mapping Installation
Developed on a sculpture composed of same size pyramids and designed by Mathieu Lehanneur.
It's located at Electric, a futuristic venue at the center of Parc des Expositions Porte de Versailles.
Our Setup was done using a custom built quartz composer rig.
It's based on the “Tracked User” functionality of the kinect camera, importing only the silhouettes of the persons moving in front of it.
The feed was pixelized according to the wall sculpture grid then used as a mask to play media content and interact with various effects (color, speed etc...).
We then remapped the video feed using MadMapper.
Creating a new surface for every pixel then mapping it to each pyramid, we covered the maximum space our video projector could provide.
The result was a 8bit looking tracking funhouse installation played by the audience of the night.
