We will explore the possibilities of depth sensors such as Kinect in the context of site-specific art and interactive installations.
These sensors do not see how things look, they see where things are. This allows the creation of for complex, yet easy to create interactions for public and private spaces. During the workshop we will design and prototype a public art installation using Kinect sensors and PCs. We will also explore some basics of binary logic, how it can be used in real space and real situations for public games, social experiments, and interaction design.
The workshop is suitable for artists and designers that are curious about innovative tools. The VVVV framework will be used throughout the workshop, but prior knowledge of this tool is not necessary.

If you do have your own Kinect sensor and PC, please bring it with you. Prior to the workshop please bring your own laptop with the Windows operating system and install VVVV (for non-commercial use available for free on the Website
