FLUIDIC – Sculpture in motion

A seemingly floating point cloud above a water pond and consisting of 12,000 translucent spheres marks the heart of the installation. the installation comes with multiple 3D camera tracking systems that are able to analyze the presence of the visitors, their positions and posture. All joints of the human body are recognized and tracked by the systems constantly. This enables precise three-dimensional interactions with the graphics and elements of the cloud. Continue reading
