I'm looking for someone to help with coding a project for an art installation. It can be in whatever programming (Flash, Processing) that this will work in perfectly. I am pretty good with technology so I can understand what is going on, I just can't build it.
This is what I'm looking for;
-This work will be an installation using a HD television to play a video file (also in HD, 1080p) that I have made.
-When a viewer enters the space, a webcam picks up their movement, at this point the video stops playing and the screen displays nothing but black.
-Once they leave the room, the video image turns back on and the cycle is reset.
So basically its a video you can't watch, you will hear it around the corner, but as soon as you enter it turns off - very frustrating!
The only thing the audience member sees is the video i have made - they do not see themselves being detected.
Also, the detection should be quite accurate as many people will try trick the system.
- I need to be able to swap out the video files so I can use whatever video I want. So being able to edit this is key.
- I need to also be able to use this across platforms (Mac, PC).
- I need to also be able to change what device the video comes from (inbuilt webcam, USB webcam)
- The spaces that this will be displayed in will range from not much lighting to a lot of light so the code should work in both of these (in dark with a infrared lightbulb)
Would like to work with you if you think you can do it...
