Blue Flow



Type of work: Interactive Installation
Permanent at Phaeno Science Center
Interactive System Design: Frieder Weiss


Phaeno website

Engineers Notes:

The audiences movement acts as an accelarating force on a particle system.

The movement is analysed with a so called optical flow algorithm (Horn/Schunk). This algorithm creates a map of movement vectors for video. Those vectors are used as accelleration vectors for the particles.

Installation History:

Phaeno, the installation opened at the Phaenomenale 2010

A custom version of the work has been exhibited at the Goethe institute San Francisco in the summer of 2010
