Hand from Above – Chris O’Shea, 2008 (video)
Unsuspecting pedestrians will be tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real-time by a giant deity.

Puppet Parade, Rise and Fall, Night Bright – Theo Watson and Emily Gobeille

le Monde des Montaignes – Camille Scherrer, 2008

Body Dysmorphic Disorder – Robert Hodgin, 2011 (video)
All that’s left is to add back in the original color values and voila, instant fatsuit and extremely creepy late-night distraction. In order to push the creepy vibe, I am only drawing the frags that are within a certain distance to the camera. If they are background frags, I discard them entirely. This ends up being extra useful because the depth image from the Kinect has a bit of parallax shadowing on the side where the depth data goes to black. Eliminating the drawing of these unwanted artifacts will clean up the final image quite a bit.

Text Rain (1999, Camille Utterback & Romy Achituv)

Laser Tag – Theo Watson, Evan Roth, Grafitti Research Lab, 2006 (video)
During a cold week in February, armed with several high power lasers, two hardcore projectors and a camper van, the Graffiti Research Lab and I went about turning the back of a large office building in Rotterdam into a massive laser-tagable space. Writers from all over Europe came down to have a go at writing their tags 140 feet high. Kids, old people and random members of the public all enjoyed being able to write messages on a building which could be seen across the whole city.

Nuage Vert – Helen Evans & Heiko Hansen, 2008 (video)
