Center of the Universe - Interactive Installation- Summer 08

Center of the Universe is an interactive installation using a projector, webcam, and coding in Actionscript, I created this project to look at intro-spective gestures and interactivity. On the ground the participant can see small, white orbs floating around. As the participant moves through the space, the orbs will change into words as they near the person. The words will spell out different themed poems depending on where the participant is in the space. The themes include love, stillness, hatred, and loneliness.


The floating orbs also react to the participant's gravitational pull, altering their paths slightly to move closer to the person. After changing into a word, it's possible to "capture" specific words if the participant plans their movements just right to alter an orb's velocity and trajectory.
