Processing Installation

An interactive audiovisual installation developed using Processing.


A second-year university project, this project was developed with the intention of being publically exhibited at the university.


We were tasked with individually conceptualising and developing interactive installation pieces using the Processing software. The theme was of our own choosing, but an element of audience interactivity was required.


I produced a work centered around the idea of audio visualisation, and how data can be represented in varying forms. Using third-party web-cam and audio libraries, the application takes light-based input from a web-cam, and draws a pattern of circles to the display. This visual creation is also converted to audio using the position of the light and the speed of movement of the light source. This allows audiences to create their own audio-visual pieces by essentially drawing with a light source.
