Interactive Bubble Wall
The multi-user installation ‘bubbles’ enables participants to interact with the realtime simulation of floating bubbles. By entering the light beam of the data projector, the participant casts a shadow onto the projection screen. the screen area is captured by a video input system and each bubble is able to independently recognize both the shadowsâ€˜ touch and its direction.
Defined as autonomous objects, the bubblesâ€˜ behavior and their response to any user-interaction follows a set of simulated physical laws. Both the overall state of the complex system and the shadowsâ€˜ interaction with the bubbles create nonlinear musical structures, that are generated in realtime utilizing a midi interface and midi synthesizer.
