Firewall is an interactive installation created by Aaron Sherwood and Mike Allison. A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a membrane interface sensitive to depth that people can push into and manipulate expressive visuals. The piece was made using Processing, Max/MSP, Arduino and a Kinect. Like the Cloud Pink by Everyware, the Kinect measures the average […]
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.
“Soak, Dye in light.” by everyware (2011) is an empty canvas but when you touch it, its elastic surface stretches and gets suffused with projected vivid colors mimicking fabric absorbing dye. Poking and rubbing with hands or resting their body on this spandex canvas allows visitors to soak this canvas in virtual dye and create own patterns. Dying fabric […]
