Spirit and matter is an interactive projection mapped installation that is inspired by the philosophies of the primordial concept of spirituality, the physical body and existence. Inspired by mandala which is a part of eastern traditions such as Hinduism and Buddhism. The aim of Spirit and matter is to represent it in a digital form.
The installation consists of tetrahedrons that have been projection mapped with generative media; these tetrahedrons are interactive and respond to the audience’s gestures. When the audience interacts with the tetrahedrons the Xbox Kinect device detects the movements and produces generative audio and video accordingly.
Spirit and matter was on display at University of Salford, MediaCityUK from the 17th till the 23rd of Jan 2012
Uses VVVV, Puredata and Microsoft Kinect.
