An initial test of the installation Aether.A series of studies in geometric symmetry, dynamic particles and interactivity on a large format multitouch screen. It explores techniques of manipulating a digital sculpt throughout the interaction of the users. It is inspired by the works of Memo Akten, Quayola as well as similarly inspired modernist cubist works such Picasso´s “Seated Nude″ and the classical french painter Poussin.The audience are able to alter the geometry and the physics to transform the representation of objects into different viewpoints. The source for the study are various Nebula images taken from the the Hubble Space Telescope. Those images are exposed into a abstract form which is possible to manipulate in real time with the touch of the users.
Visuals and Interactivity Design:

Projection and Multitouch Hardware Integrator:
The installation consists of a custom designed cabinet and a Glass of 4.30 x 2.20 m with Capacitive Multitouch Technology and 4 projectors. Visuals are writing in C++ using Cinder, TUIO block and Fade2D library.
