Numbers, a record label originating from Glasgow, had the opportunity to showcase artists at this year's Sonar Festival in Barcelona. The artists Redinho, Spencer, Deadboy, Jackmaster, and Lory D each had a spot in the set. Adam Rodgers, co-founder of Numbers and Remote-Location approached Thomas Traum, Adam Finlay and myself to create live visuals for the show. We compared a number of technologies and frameworks-- OpenFrameworks, Cinder, Unity3D, Cocos2d, WebGL, Processing, and good ol' Flash. Doing something in 3D was a priority, and since we only had a 2-3 week timeline, the decision really came down to what would be the fastest to develop.
Ghost is an interactive installation of a snow storm, raging within an abandoned, barren landscape. Within this storm the visitor can make out a procession of human forms which seemingly try to find a way out. The bodies are remnants of the previous visitors, their ghosts, trapped in the hostile environment.
