Reactive particles is an interactive projection which we made to add some creativity to our IxD studio at SVA.

The Problem

When you visit a creative place, it always has a particular vibe to it. We found that missing at our IxD studio in SVA.

Our studio entrance



Reactive Particles is a projection of particles on a screen which react to movement. It was made using Processing and the PixelFlow library. It uses a webcam to record the activity in front of the installation and then performs video subtraction which makes the particles to react to change.
