I’m currently playing around with an idea for a project. Maybe some of you have ideas, how this could be done.
I’m thinking of bringing together 3d mapping with mask theater. The performers would wear abstract objects as masks (with a size of let’s say about 40-70 cm^3). The masks would be simple geometric primitives like cubes or cones, nothing too complex.
Onto that projection surface I would like to project some content like a 3d-Model of an animal-head, or whatever… something cool ;)
At the moment i’m thinking of using maybe a wireless arduino with a gyroscopice sensor inside the masks, to deliver the rotation values of the mask-object.
Then there should be some kind of tracking to get the position of the actors on stage. Maybe with a kinect?
What du you think?
