An interactive work designed to show people how their actions have a direct result on the fate of our planet to encourage a sense of responsibility. Thousands of people have enjoyed An Interactive Earth at such events as Splore, Weta Digital Christmas party, Nelson Light Festival, Pah Gallery, Dowse Art Museum, Art in the Dark, White Night and Bright Night's.
We used Lemur running on an iPad, which sent OSC signals to Ableton Live for the sound, and to Touch Designer which controlled the visuals. 25 flat, loopable earth states where wrapped onto a spinning sphere in Touch Designer which, due to dissolving between multiple quicktimes, gave a smooth interactive experience as the audience used the faders to control the world. The resulting image was projected using a 5k projector. A matching interactive stereo sound design was created in Ableton Live, using using Lemur's onboard logic to covert the interactive data into usable information.
