Above that skin of ours

Above that Skin of Ours is a 3d projection-mapped installation created as a self-portrait of its authors (Sergio Mora-Diaz and Natalia Cabrera). The piece combines physical and digital layers in order to study human skin and its different sizes, colors

Digital Performance Project 2: Motion Detection

Project in collaboration with Caitlin Sikora. We decided to use video projection and flashlights as different sources of light that make the body of dancers appear and dissappear while on stage. We used a Kinect Sensor to track the movement

Nature of Code Midterm Project

I decided to use the creature I designed in previous assignments, to develop an ecosystem of two different species living together inside of a water tank. There is a particle system of small creatures (boids) flocking together, and a larger

Autonomous Agents

I added some element of “steering” to a previous sketch to create a group of sea creatures or boids that move through the screen. The three forces applied to each boid to create the steering behavior are avoid, approach, and
