Bonnier – Nice To Meet You!
In Hornstull in Stockholm they are building a new shopping mall during the next two years. This means that people passing through this area will have to go through a construction site everyday. To make this a more pleasant experience we helped create an interactive forest for new meetings in the area.
In the long tunnel section of the construction site 24 speakers were installed in 4 different zones, each playing a different “forest ambience” depending on how many people were passing by aswell as the time of the day.
Then 5 video projectors were installed each connected to a Kinect. When standing in front of the projectors you can interact with the forest by moving your body. You can also create a meeting by standing next to a friend in front of one of the screen, the meeting flies away and ends ut as a leaf in the interactive forest.
Each meeting gets a unique number, you can use that number to tag your meeting on the site made for the experience, using facebook.
We did all the music and sound design. Bot above all we did the logic behind it all. The music is created using data such as time of the day, interaction, twitter mentions and so on… This ensures that the music is constantly changing and that it is dynamic but yet musical.
