Nice CubeNice Cube is an extension of the series - Playful Architectural Spaces, where a virtual character plays with the wall and the physical elements present on the wall like frames and switch board.
Nice Cube/ FRAMEWORKS was exhibited at the FANTAsia, Art Gallery of ACM Siggraph Asia 2011 in Hong Kong from 12th - 15th Dec, 2011.
It is an interactive installation trying to enhance the experience of an architectural space. In this installation, we have tried to use a space like any living room walls and turn that into a playful yet meaningful place. Inclusion of such playful act and simple interactions allows us to add a new meaning to that space turning it into a warm place. A wall which was unnoticed earlier, now adds new dimension to the space.
The game was developed using OpenFrameworks. The position of the character moved using Open CV blob detection.
Playful Interaction Series
About the series:
A series of interactive installations trying to enhance the experience of an architectural space.
Through such installations, we have the opportunity to interact with the walls to add a new meaning to a cold and insignificant spaces. These installations showcases how interactivity can be explored for opening up new possibilities to create more immersive and playful experiences.
Initially started with a classroom project in 2010 - FRAMEWORKS, and in over time we have tried exploring the same concept in various places to generate meaning to a place. Below are projects which showcases such an playful environment.
