If you recall “Soak, Dye in Light” project by everyware, Cloud Pink is the latest iteration, taking on the analogy of cloud rather than paint soaked fabric. The installation invites participants to “touch the pink clouds” drifting on a giant fabric screen suspended in the air.
Lying down on a hill with your pupils filled with the endless blue sky, perspective of your eyesight suddenly gets distorted and clouds drift at the tip of your nose. You stretch your arms up to the sky to touch the clouds but can’t reach. Another world right above your head, clouds.
Created using Processing, GLSL and 2 x Kinects and Projectors.
