NYC Phantoms

NYC Phantoms

 

Night Street Art Intervention concept and prototype.

We built a prototype to simulate the NYC steam geysers that rise from the manhole, and projected the phantom of E. Allan Poe and made it interact with bystanders.

Work was done in collaboration with Natalie Tschechaniuk and Uttam Grandhi.

 

Software: OpenFrameworks, Arduino.

Hardware: Arduino UNO, distance sensors, speakers, fog machine, and projector.
