In memory of Kathee Irene Toon (1950 – 2010) The goal of this project was to explore the creation of generative visuals through experimental interfaces between Max/MSP/Jitter and camera inputs. Taking inspiration from notions of visual music and synaesthesia, I explored various options for using motion data to create visual responses projected in space. The Nature of Living's interaction design explicitly corresponds to the movements of a user, instead of provoking the user with ambiguous visuals. The final result took the form of a pseudo-fluid blob, and its anaglyphic effect was to visually represent the frequency of recorded movements. This project was featured in New Zealand Pro Design Issue #111, as well as in the 2012 Prospectus Handbook for Victoria University of Wellington's Faculty of Architecture and Design. Read Less
