Feedback is an interactive installation by Hellicar & Lewis with Todd Vanderlin, curated by Shane Walter of onedotzero for the Roundhouse CircusFest 2010. The installation encourages performance from the public via a “magic mirror” scenario with a number of interactive real-time effects created using openFrameworks.
Feedback aims to encourage performance from members of the public and circus performers alike. Using the familiar form of a mirror, the installation uses cutting-edge computer vision techniques to allow users to remix their bodies in real time, and display them on a large scale over the interior and exterior of the Roundhouse in Camden. By dancing, performing – or even modestly gesturing in front of the screen – the installation will capture the movement of anyone interacting with it to create a graphic animation of their body movements. The effect is similar to that of a ‘Hall of Mirrors’, generating an unexpected and magical wobbly, bendy or stretched reflection.
You can experience the installation for yourself until 16th May at The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road, London NW1 8EH, UK.
