Overview

Bodies in Motion is an immersive light installation created by Todd Bracher and Studio TheGreenEyl for Humanscale at Milan Design Week 2019.
The work features a minimal representation of the human body formed of lights that respond to the movements of visitors. As visitor's bodies are scanned, 15 motorised lights project tightly-focussed white beams onto a screen fifteen metres away. The points of light on the screen correspond to key points of the person's body. Each person that interacts triggers a specific visual and sound experience that is tightly synced across the two.

Goals

Create a spectacular experience for Milan Design Week that celebrates human motion.

Process

We created custom software that used the depth sensor data to control the motorized light sources.
