Übungsraum was a room-scale installation using a webcam and kinect to track movements of people in the space. Their images were projected onto the wall, with the image only updating in the location where they were moving thereby leaving trails of their movements. The X/Y/Z positions of people also affected the sound characteristics of synth oscillators playing in the room. This project was a collaboration with Matthew Howell and Jacob Fenwick, produced for the 2015 CODAME Art+Tech Festival. My role was developing the visual projection and webcam integration.
