Your computer mouse tracks your hand in 2d space. Your monitor spits this information back out at you with a cursors – a dot of light – that moves across the screen.
In this project, a computer tracks the movement of an audience member’s hand in 3d space. This computer then uses this information to control a set of 12 moving head lights to create a 3d visual feedback system.
The first video is a sketch of the idea, explaining how it works technically. The second video is the live performance of the working technology.
