This is an interactive installation to turn audience poses with real-time pose detection techniques into the control of images and hashtags on the LED image wall. With the deep learning TensorFlow model PoseNet and RealSense depth camera, we have developed a program in Processing to perform real-time gesture control.
It was co-developed by me and Chan Long Fung Lazarus as a creative technologist and a new media artist. It was a commissioned project in ARCH “Arts X Tech” Exhibition invited by the 13th Arts Ambassadors-in-School Scheme organised by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council (HKADC).
This project was an extension of an AR artwork Life as usual by Natalie Lo Lai-lai. The screen recordings of the Instagram AR filter uploaded by the users are stored in our database, and they are converted to GIF animation to our Processing code as GIF assets remotely every day.
