The Treachery of Sanctuary

CREATORS PROJECT DOUCUMENTARY

THE TREACHERY OF SANCTUARY 2012

The Treachery of Sanctuary, currently touring the world with The Creators Project, is a large-scale interactive triptych: a story of birth, death, and transfiguration that uses projections of the participants’ own bodies to unlock a new artistic language.  

The work consists of three 30-foot high white panel frames suspended from the ceiling on which digitally captured shadows are reprojected.  A shallow reflecting pool sits between the viewers and the screens.  In the background, an openFrameworks application utilizes the Microsoft Kinect SDK for Windows.  This talks to a front end running Unity3D in which articulated 3D models of birds interact with the shadows captured by three hidden Kinects.
