Rendez-vous is a concept application for the Dropstuff "Kinect Art Challenge 2013". and will be exhibited at the 55th Biennale in Venice.
New technologies allow people to be closer together then ever before. The relative distance is getting smaller and smaller. The Kinect Art Challenge proves this once again by setting up two huge screens. One in Venice and one in Amsterdam. Which people from both cities can get a spontaneous and interactive experiences to meet each other.
We want to show the encounters between people in the purest form. These encounters lead to unexpected and spectacular outcomes. Users shall see themselves as sand men. When they encounter there sand will burst and leave an imprint on the screen. Creating at the end one big piece of art through there motions.
A concept together with Jason Schot, Suzanne Bon and Ruben Bernhardt.
Feel the flow, experience the 'rush'. Experience the City
Balancity is an interactive installation that lets you experience the hectic and flow of a big city. Through standing on a balance-board the user tries to get in the flow (or not).
With a Wii controller connected to an Arduino we could control the movie and music using OpenFrameworks.
On 23th of June 2012 Balancity was exhibited at Klaverkade in Utrecht (NL).
