Engaging Participators


Engaging Participators

In the age of ubiquitous computing, natural user interfaces are deployed to enhance and expand the human experience in retail environments, education and art. Technology is used to create captivating, memorable user experiences in order to communicate a message. A simple on-site installation can produce an engaging play of sound and visuals instigated by the participator’s body movement.

Mapping Movement to Video and Sound with Max/MSP and the Kinect

This workshop/class focuses on mapping movement to parameters of video and audio effects. Using 2D data from Max/MSP/ jitter and the cv.jit library and 3D data captured from the Kinect with Synapse, body movement is mapped to interactive video effects and sound. This class is for video and installation artists, musicians, dancers and others who are interested in creating video or audio effects using the movement of the body
