Torrence 6-36-86

room with frame on stand and projection on wall

Rashana Perks Smith directed an immersive dance theatre performance which took place in May of 2016. I was invited to create an interactive video installation for guests to encounter as they moved between different performances in her house.

I took the opportunity to learn about several new technologies (OpenFrameworks, 3D scanning, the new Raspberry Pi computer, 360 Video, and IMU sensor hardware) and created a site-specific, 3d printed 360 video viewer for guests to pick up and interact with. I also projection mapped 360 video onto part of the room.
