The aim of this interaction design project is to explore alternative ways of communicate between people through digital technology. An interactive system was design and built to encourage active social interactions between users in a traditionally passive setting (i.e. movie theaters).
A shadow detection table and microphones are used to promote cooperation and communication. The audiances of an abstract animation needed to work together and enage in playful communication to trigger the progression of the animation. The final outcome of this project is a fun interactive installation titled Jekyll & Hyde. This piece took inspiration from Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” (1886).
