From Classroom to Art Festival

Interactive Projection, Project Management, Marketing and Communication, Visual Design, Project Producer
InterKinect, an immersive interactive projection exhibition created by seven Digital Media Art and Design students from the CADRE (Computers in Art, Design, Research, and Education) Student Organization, has evolved from a small club experimental collaboration in a classroom to a showcase in an art gallery at SJSU, then to a larger scale at SubZERO Festival in downtown San Jose, in front of more than a thousand audience members.

Using Kinect sensors to track body movements in real-time, InterKinect invites visitors to become active participants in the artistry, with their gestures and motions translated into dynamic visual displays projected onto surrounding surfaces. This collaborative project celebrates human interaction and showcases the exciting fusion of art and technology.
