About

We are a collective of students attending our final year at Carleton for B.I.T. Interactive Multimedia & Design. This is the blog that we are using for inner-group communication. This About section will be updated as time passes.

Project Description


Our team is interested in using this interactive art format as it will allow us to observe,
from a global perspective, the social collectiveness of different moods and emotions of individuals. We will build an environment with screens and projectors that participants can walk through. On the walls, ‘mood words’ will be projected at varying sizes, moving and dynamically growing and decaying based on user input through several methods.

1. Direct user input of words (using text messaging/mobile devices and computer consoles within the installation and via the website)
2. Through facial expression (using image processing/analysis)
3. Through body movement (using accelerometers or Wii-style interface) All of the words will combine in the environment, however the dominant mood (the mood most inputted by users) will also alter the colours and music/sounds of the environment. In this way, all users will be able to influence their own environment, but only to a certain extent. The mood will be most heavily influenced by the majority (or global) mood.
