An Audience of One

An interactive, live data projection concept.

Four experimental installations created visually meditative spaces to explore observation, self-reflective and self-expression.

The animated narratives were created using the real-time platform Unity. This allowed the viewer to interact with the typographic aspect of the works by tweeting new meanings to three of the four scenes. For the fourth piece, real-time data was fed in to generate raindrops based on actual current rainfall data from towns across Australia.

The highly cinematic animations were generated as endless real-time sequences, never the same. Ambient layers of sound provided atmospheric cues to the visuals providing a deeper connection for the viewer.
