REACTIVE CANOPY
MAY 2011


Working towards dynamic communication between computer vision and reactive architecture.
A camera overhead tracks the amount of motion on a ramp between two buildings, under a glass atrium. A canopy overhead opens over areas with more motion to allow light to follow pedestrians, while areas that are still remain shadowed. Frame differencing in openCV generates motion data, which is passed to Rhino/Grasshopper using OSC.

Current video is still from testing phase - better documentation video coming soon.
