Workshop Body Double COMPLEThttp://head.hesge.ch
Partnership Mapping Festival/ Master Media Design Head - Genève
Body Double will look at various methods of integrating Kinect sensors into interactive installations and performances. Two methods of vision capture will be explored: the first dealing with detecting body morphology, with the second dedicated to analyzing points in space. A development library already in use in the CityMedia project will be used as a starting point.
After a brief introduction to the tools, workshop participants will build prototypes which can then be experimented directly on the City Media system at the end of the workshop. Participants are asked to arrive with a basic understanding of Processing, freely downloaded from the Internet.
Max. 10 participants
Equipment recommended: MacBook Pro (Intel)
Kinect Media Design captors will be furnished
