Interactive audiovisual installation, 2017

EchoSystem is an interactive audiovisual installation, carried out in collaboration with the pedagogical team and the students of the school of Jettingen (France).

Two versions of the work have been developed. The first version is an installation comprising a Kinect (capture device to detect the position, shape of the silhouette and movements of users), two speakers, a video projector and a projection screen. A second version installed on the interactive whiteboard of the class, tactile and perennial, allows students to keep track of our creation and rediscover it whenever they wish
