A project I worked on with Julie Andreyev:
AutoLounge, is an interactive social space used for relaxation and discussion, joining the visiting community with the local community. Visitors’ physical presence is tracked by cameras, microphones and software to produce an audio-visual panoramic environment. As visitors travel through AutoLounge, their movements trigger the display of “avatars” – videos of individuals in the community – mapped onto projected videos of the surrounding urban landscape. An ambient soundscape is generated automatically by pre-determined combinations of sounds of the space.
