DUST

2017 FALL
LOCATION: PENN STATE STUCKMAN SCHOOL IMMERSIVE ENVIRONMENTS LAB
INDIVIDUAL PROJECT
PROFESSOR: ANDREW HIERONYMI
PROCESSING, ARDUINO

DUST involves both physical and virtual parts - the luminescent shoes and the live generated animation. Groups of horizontal and vertical lines form the primary topography of “space”.  The moving line represents the deconstruction of the mesh system and unveils the forming process of virtual space.

The luminescent shoes have pressure sensitive material and arduino board attached to them to gather the participant’s movement information. The physical movement will then trigger the particle effects on the screen. In this installation the physical and visual output interplay to form the multi-sensory experience for the participant. This work seeks to demonstrate the space traveling experience and raise the question about the connection between physical and virtual world.
