MADE – Me and My Shadow

So, the London stint of the MADE residencies is over. There were a fair few technical challenges to overcome in this short time,  most notably streaming Kinect meshes between 4 machines simultaneously and in real time.
I was not 100% happy with the result but i know that i had sacrificed frame rate for stability for the process demo on the last day. I think i could have pushed it quite a lot further and given a little more time could have got them streaming at maybe half frame rate (12fps). other than that the applicaqtion worked well, i still have a fair number of visual bugs to sort out but as we were only paying lip service to the aesthetics of the the work i only care about those for my own personal pride.

Here is some video of all 4 portals setup side by side

Thanks to the people of the National Theatre for hosting us, you were all very pleasant company and a special thanks to our dancers Sasha, Nick and Amina we could have done none of this without your patient participation.
