interactions poster  (x, y, z) (x, y, z) (x, y, z) (x, y, z)

(x , y , z) is an interactive installation using the Kinect and Processing, exploring the process of measuring – the ability to obtain a number related to an object or event – in relation to the body. The viewer becomes the measuring device: their arms become the pointers and must move and explore the gallery space in order to activate the image on the screen. This piece also explores notions of boundaries, locality, remote communication and correlation.

The rules of the piece are not given and there is no ultimate outcome, encouraging experimentation through unusual movements by the audience – a tug-of-war between the virtual and physical settings.
