Installation at Sunset

Hirsch & Mann designed, produced and installed this interactive light, sound and biometric experience.

The cloud is a steel sculpture suspended above ground. Within the cloud clear acrylic cubes contain uniquely desesigned robotic musical instruments. These are played by the audience engaging with the installation from six biometrix input stations on ground.

I was responsible for the architecture and development of the full control system, realtime live input to output mapping (live via tablet) and the input/output software on each single board computer. This included a camera based soft surface touch sensor.
