Silhouette by Antoine Villeret on Vimeo.

Silhouette is an interactive installation in which a laser projector draws animated silhouettes. It was first showed during the open days of the ENSAD in January 25th and 26th, 2013.

The visitors entered the building through a sinous and narrow corridor. At its end, they saw a green shape and realized by getting closer that it was their contour projected on a paper screen by a laser.

This disposal uses a depth sensor (Kinect) that easily extracts the visitor’s silhouettes. Those silhouettes are then vectorised so the laser can project them. The whole video processing is achieved with puredata thanks to custom externals.
