Descripción del proyecto / Descripction of the project

Consiste en una instalación interactiva en la que los participantes, al introducir el brazo en una caja mágica, verán cómo se transforma en una pata virtual en tiempo real, cuyos movimientos, imágenes y sonidos que hagan con los dedos y el brazo se corresponderán con las pezuñas y con la pata de animales o insectos según sus características particulares de color anchura, etc.

It consists of an interactive installation where participants place their arms in a magic box and then see how it turns into a virtual animal’s leg in real time. Movements, images and sounds made with the arm and fingers will match the hoof and animal’s or insect’s leg, depending on the specific colours, width, etc.

animal textures.


Development:

C++ libs, Openframeworks, animata, OpenGl, Pure Data or MAX/MSP


Sound environment/interaction:
