This interactive installation work comprises a computer-driven motion sensor, speakers and projector. The projection shows 3D geological strata accreting and eroding in real time. The computer tracks your movements around the space and uses the resulting data to change the patterns of accretion and erosion in the projected forms.
Accretion Room is showing at Moana Project Space in the Perth CBD from 3–26 July, 2015. Its purpose is to explore, in real time, the interaction between people and simulated geological forms.
On entering the installation you will see a room painted matt black, with a circular projection screen at one end showing striated geological forms. As you move around the room, the forms will erode and accrete in response. Subtle sounds will accompany these changes. You’ll be able to play with the work, but the interactions will be nonlinear in nature, preventing any real sense of control.
