Fifteen points (XV) is an interactive floor projection in which viewers are encouraged to move throughout the space and engage in the manipulation of the art piece. The spaces generated through these fifteen points detect the body of the participant, bending and distorting the architecture of the piece. When a presence is no longer sensed, the shapes are autonomously restored with a burst of energy to their original state, while a generative soundscape orchestrates the entire experience.
This piece is the result of a collaborative effort in sound composition, computational art and mathematics. Integrating computer vision technologies and a nouvelle interface of Control Voltage audio synthesis (CV/Gate) with Bluetooth communication, XV expands on prior body of work in interactive visualization and sonification. The installation immerses the viewer in a synaesthetic environment; visual forms are produced as an analogue to music (Betancourt 2013).
