Tracking You Research Video

Tine Bech and Tom Mitchell talks about Tracking You

Tracking You is an interactive sound installation which use people’s movements to generate sound. The work is visceral, connecting the human body, technology, and sound to create a playful interactive installation. People are invited to wear capes that are augmented with RFID tags. Through the use of real-time position technology the capes are tracked and will generate sound depending on where people are in the space, speed and where they are according to each other. Participants can choose between five beautiful silk capes printed with a digital pattern in different colours. Each cape has its own sound profile and participants can shoot each other.
