Stardust!

Experiments
Several iterations later, I finally finished Stardust! Just in time for the end of year show at Khio, too! The final installation used the coloured-boids, as they matched exactly the art direction from the photoshoot (part of the visual references process). It was tricky to work with the set-up: get the projector and kinect aligned,…

Stardust: final flocking

Experiments
Stardust was well under way. After the last testing, I noticed that I needed to make the boids more “shimmery” in order to communicate stardust, maybe change the speed and colour as well. I went back to my visual references and found an image from a photoshoot I took. The glitter captured looked like what…

Stardust: flocking II: FBO

Experiments
The flocking system in Stardust was taking shape. Talking with my tutors, I learned that there was a way to work with flocking systems in a way that was easier to display in real-time than what I had. This involved using a frame buffer object, or FBO, and “place” the flocking system in it. I…

Stardust: flocking I (projection test)

Experiments
It was exciting to create my first flocking system, and I couldn’t wait to test it full-scale with people. Stardust was on its way to completion! I used a very rough set-up just to test how it felt like (I was impatient and wanted to test it as fast as possible). Lo-res pictures capture the…

Stardust: flocking I

Experiments
At this point in the Stardust project, I was happy with the results. However, I wanted to develop the visual language further, from the glitter-like stars to a more organic system . Responding to participants’ feedback, I created a way for the stardust to move around, change direction and flow in an organic way. I…

Stardust: mirrors

After completing the screen-tests, I had an idea of what type of visual language to use. Before I continued developing the software, I tested the stating images but without a screen this time. I projected them at the participant’s body directly. When I did this, I noticed something very important for the whole experience. the…

Stardust: screen tests

Experiments
Another stage of the Stardust  process: testing out the visual language of the stars. I took the visual references that I had researched and through the program I created, I used them as silhouettes of the participant’s bodies, in real time. This allowed me to test out the system and to decide along with participants…
