Bogotá Cinematheque Inauguration (2019)

Interactive Visualization of Colombian cinematography. Bogota. 2019.

A short video with some shots from the interactive audiovisual installation made for the inauguration of Bogotá’s Cinematheque. Made in June 2019 and presented by the Art, Science and Technology line of Idartes, CKWeb, and the Cinematheque. 

The project is a large scale projection mapping which allowed users to explore Colombia’s Cinematographic database through the use of their bodies. The experience created a virtual world where each movie was represented by a cube. The users could grab, punch or collide each movie with each other. 

The tracking was made with a Kinect 2 to track the user’s presence and head movement to be replicated in the projection. The simulation and database control was created in Unity. There were two simulations: one for user presence and another for user absence. Thanks to everyone who made part of this project, and to the Art, Science and Technology line of Idartes, CKWeb, and the Cinematheque.
