Light as a interactive material
Part of the exhibition “tanz!” at the The Deutsche Hygiene Museum Dresden
EPILOG is an interactive room installation applying light, sound and haze. By immersing themselves into a 25-minute constantly-transforming world of moving images and sounds, visitors are invited to swing into interaction by physically replying to the moving patterns – either on their own or together with others.
An interactive floor projection reacting to movements in real time gets the visitor moving and, through that movement, creates three-dimensional spaces made of light.
Tracking cameras, fog and a smooth double-projection act as spawning searchlights, reactive light walls and rays bouncing off bodies.
Each of the eleven scenes follows a unique principle: Whether visitors are chased by a simulated, abstract school of fish, or their movements are branded into the fog and leave behind a swath of light, real-time generated sound follows the movement and intensifies the immersive experience.
