Construct & Destroy

concept:

Construct and Destroy is a thought-provoking interactive artwork that uses projected video and interactive elements as a medium to explore the human quest for construction and destruction. The work features a figure building blocks in the video, and while in the midst of construction, the viewer can interact with it. By pushing the hovering circle, the viewer is personally involved in the cycle of construction and destroy. This visual and interactive combination is a symbol of the constant search for the delicate balance between creation and destruction, allowing the viewer to contemplate the inherent nature of mankind in the art space.

Based on the previous concept, I’ve been working on creating a more immersive experience for the audience. I’ve introduced additional visual elements with more lighting and auditory elements through music to engage the audience’s sensory perceptions. I’ve incorporated a spotlight to ensure that people notice the hovering circle, especially for those who might be solely focused on watching the videos and overlook the interactive nature of the piece. Additionally, a text guide will be show on the floor when audiences enter in the spotlight area, providing instructions for the audience.

The connection between the distance sensor and Arduino has been successfully established during in the class.

Additionally, I’ve integrated this setup into TouchDesigner. The next steps involve recording the videos and determining the hover circle to trigger the interactive collapse in TouchDesigner.

Furthermore, I plan to use the distance sensor in TouchDesigner to initiate the appearance of a text guide on the floor.
