THE PROJECT.........................

The Adelaide University approached Sandpit to create a vibrant activation in the centre of the City to coincide with the 2017 Adelaide Fringe Festival. Competing with other interactive works, the project was to attract night time festival-goers.
 
We made the main 22 metre fence out the front of Adelaide University coming alive during the Adelaide Fringe.
 
This was be done by lining both the front and back of the fence with LED rods, as well as placing more LEDs inside the lantern in the middle of the footpath. An intricate light show was then displayed.
 
As spectators approach the wall, using a Kinect motion camera it detected detect their presence to light their way as they walked by. The LED bars on the fence acted as a canvas for many variations of video, animation and colour. The LED bars were preprogrammed to create a lightshow that was engaging to watch even when no one was up against the fence interacting with it. The Kinect motion detection cameras were able to track any user movement or gesture and translate that into an interaction with the fence.

THE TECHNOLOGY..........................
