Camera Music/ Kinetic Shadows

Interactive particle display at Spiral/ Wacoal Art Center in Tokyo, 1997

The installation uses a motion detection system fed by a video camera. The moment an observer moves in front of the installation, his figure is abstractly traced by a particle pattern.
The gravitational center of this swarming pattern moves over an invisible audio grid. Depending on the quadrant of the matrix in which the gravitational center of activity is located, the audio system generates a particular sound.
