THE SOCIAL CAVE - An interactive physical temporary installation at Salone Satellite - Milano - April 2011 - Video by Hierro - Rome (full credits on the film opening titles)
The Social Cave project is an interactive installation developed by 24 international students of the Research Lab Non-Linear Solution Unit directed by Caterina Tiazzoldi and in collaboration with interaction designers Mirko Arcese e Luca Biada (BCAA.it).
Using the last 3d motion capture technology like Kinect and OpenNi, plus VVVV, managed by custom software, this application "reads" human behaviours combining two different stages into one virtual space; where the phisycal limit represented by a wall, becames the interactive social scene.
The design engaged the students in the challenge of organizing an assembly of 100% recycled and 100% recyclable polystyrene polygons. Thanks to the interactive platform, the Social Cave is an installation that explores the idea of socialization into the contemporary age by a reinterpretation of the
physical and digital meeting.
