Large-scale screen and floor projections confront and engage visitors passing through the massive space of the¬†Corderie dell‚ÄôArsenale.¬†The screen is a clock and responsive real time capture of the presence of visitors while the floor projection gradually reveals a fleeting, ethereal architecture.
The AirXY facade was implemented by Hugues Bruy?®re and myself. The software is written in C++ using the openFrameworks library. The video is captured using 4 infra-red cameras, and is processed using OpenCV and the FreeFrame 1.5 video plugin architecture. Rendering is done in traditional OpenGL and using GLSL shaders. The output image is split and output to 2 projectors for display on the screens.
