SYNC Cloud

My Role —

Installation Design

SYNC Cloud is an interactive installation for the SYNC museum. It guides visitors of the museum to connect three different fields of study, and that action reveals an individual who has created something about the three subjects. Using Processing programming, Kinect motion detection, and projection mapping, SYNC Cloud demonstrates how connecting the dots between ideas can give birth to new creativity.

The System

The SYNC Cloud consists of four parts. The Kinect sensor below the installation captures the user’s motion, and the computer runs a program in Processing to connect the user’s motion to action. A projector above the user shoots the image onto the installation.
