Rainscape was created for The Performance Arcade 2015 as a collaboration with Lisa Taylor.
In Rainscape we create an interactive rainy day scenescape, which responds to people as they interact with the space. Viewers see raindrops falling underneath and around their feet. They are invited to walk into the space and see the raindrops chasing their movements. This is achieved through a motion tracking camera and live projection mapping.
The visual element is accompanied by an adaptive surround soundscape that responds to people’s movement in the space. As their interactions become more intense, so too does the reaction of the space, changing in abstract ways, creating an atmosphere of chaos.
