Belly of the beast, an interactive art installation at the heart of the Burning Man festival. A collaboration with Will Atwood and Bent Stamnes and a part of IAMAI project.
Following the I, Robot theme of Burning Man festival, this project is a mix of mechanical and organic, robotic and natural. Visualizing the creation machine, gears and cogs twisting and grinding, being inside and outside at the same time, at the center structure about to be burnt to the ground next day.
By touching the plant (augmented with a hidden Leap Motion sensor) passersby can move the cogs of a 360 degree projection machine situated in the heart of the temporary city in the desert.
