This sculpture belongs to the project "LoHaitz", a personal search through my origins in nature and myths.
It is an interactive installation that generates relations between humans, mythology and nature. A sculpture inspired in the main Mountain of the Basque Mythology, Anboto, is given liveness through the projection mapping of landscapes and natural elements: earth, water, fire and air. The experience of interaction is approached by the curiosity and proximity of the visitor where the natural sounds get distorted by the presence of a body.
The sculpture uses a depth camera that detects the proximity of the visitor making the wave frequency of sound change in proportion to the distance detected with the sculpture. Visitors play an important role, putting on question the relation we humans have with our ecosystem and each natural element. The closer that we get the more distorted it gets? The sculpture doesn't just tries to set one only interrogative but it also settles the visitor in the position of one of these mythological deities which have control in nature. It is a dual but at the same time complementary relationship.
*For the Arte Laguna, just one element will be project mapped (either ocean, cascade, fire or storm), this will depend on the space flexibility. A dark space is not required as high resolution projectors can be used. A camera depth (Kinect v1) will be used and for the interaction the space measurements required are the ones written before, however the sculpture measurements are the following (cm) : 150 base, 80 height, 100depth.
