This interactive sculpture builds on the walkway at the Christchurch Airport, sensing movement from people walking through the walkway and transferring it into pulses of sound and light.
Mounted in each of the 36 archways are two pairs of infrared sensors which send a signal to a Touchdesigner server every time somebody crosses the infrared beams. By having two 'sensor-receiver' pairs the server can work out visitors' direction and speed by calculating the time difference between each beam being broken. The server processes the data then creates the echoes, or ripples of light and sound, adding a little moment of wonder and magic at the final, or beginning stage of the visitors journey.
A collaboration with CIAL, Boffa Miskell, and Pederson Reid.
