Counterparts is an interactive installation on the topic of virtual identities and loss of control in the digital realm.

I was the technical lead on this project and created custom software using openFrameworks for:

  • projection mapping on 3D surfaces with multiple projectors
  • tracking (based on multiple depth/RGB-D cameras)

  • interactive visuals with lots of fun glitchy GLSL shaders

All of this reacted to visitor’s movements in real time. I also went back to my past experience in digital fabrication and built a setup to planarize arbitrary meshes for real-world fabrication with a CNC mill.
