Here Nor There

This is my senior thesis project; an interactive installation created in TouchDesigner. The entire piece utilizes a computer running the program, a projector, and a Kinect motion capture camera.

My inspiration for the concept came from some personal research on quantum entanglement and superposition theory. I'm very interested in how quantum particles can spin both up & down simultaneously, and how they can become "entangled" with another particle and share identical properties to it, regardless of distance. I tried to visualize this concept by creating a piece that depends entirely on interaction from the viewer - if no one is there to observe the art, it does not exist. But, at the same time, it has to exist in this world in order for a viewer to be provoked to interact with it; it both "is" and "isn't."
