the Technology

The installation uses a 3D camera (Kinect).

One person is singled out of the crowd and is projected onto a large screen, isolated from the rest.

Soon enough this person will hear a soft voice inviting him to get closer, explore the loneliness and embrace it.

This person will notice the ability to influence the music with body movement, thus controlling the surrounding sounds and possibly benefiting from the outcome - which is, surprisingly enough, the moment when the other people appear on the screen.

WE currently use a state machine with few states only, but are planning to enhance this in order to improve the experience.

Moreover, should this person spread their hands and touch someone else - they will also join the seclusion - or maybe change it.

As soon as a person will become comfortable with themselves we will reveal other people.
