Created as an experimentation of new media, this project explores responsive projections. Entirely programmed in grasshopper, as a plug-in to Rhino, the array of lines respond to the movement of a person captured on web cam. As the person moves across the frame, the lines lengthen and shorten and are projected on a series of fabric pieces, which allow the lines to be represented both on the backdrop and perpendicular to the backdrop, creating a 3-dimensional, dynamic representation of the subject's movement. This project was designed, built, programmed, and documented in conjunction with eleven other teammates: Rachel Baker, Zane Birenbaum, Brandon Darreff, Irfan Haider, Ritchie Ju, Jai Kanodia, Gargi Lagvankar, Nicole Lee-Park, Xin-Hui Lim, Matt Radican, and Aditi Thota.
