Amnesia Razorfish has announced the release of its source code used to create The Importance of Kinection, a new video data art project that had its premiere at TEDx Sydney.
One of the showcase entertainment pieces at the conference, the brief was to inspire attendees with innovation at the forefront.
Amnesia Razorfish creative director, Jay Morgan, said that people knew TED for offering inspiring seminars and guest speakers.
“We based this project on the creative insight that, while that may be the case, they often overlook the importance of connecting with people outside of the auditorium,” he said.
The Importance of Kinection used 3D tracking technology to create a live demonstration marrying point cloud data with audience interactions. 3D cameras captured TEDx guests in the foyer and overflow area, then in real-time, visualised the millions of potential physical connections between attendees on the day.
The agency invites other visual artists, developers or anyone who’s simply curious to re-use, remix and release their own interpretations of the project under creative commons license by downloading the code.
Amnesia Razorfish has plans to install the real time experience in a contemporary art space in Sydney for public viewing.
