The Microsoft Cube

audio-reactive dance installation

Microsoft created a sculpture that was projected on from within, including integrated Kinect sensors on four sides. We visualized the skeletons of dancers on all sides, connecting the limbs of those on opposite sides of the cube. It was installed in the main venue of a Seattle music festival, and reacted to the audio in real-time.
