Every year at AWS re:Play, Production Club designs an activation for Intel. This year, it allowed the attendees to explore generative lighting and video behaviors by using just their body movements. The installation consisted of a grid of 13×13 ACL 360i’s in the roof, a corresponding grid of LED tiles on the floor and mirrored walls around the perimeter. As there is no pre-made solution to make a lighting system interactive, we developed our own software in Unreal Engine 4, to connect the lighting, video and sensor systems through Art-Net. Through this custom software we could recognize gestures, perform blob tracking and generate the lighting effects in real time.
