“The Philosopher Cube” was a project that I was commissioned to do for Ottawa’s 2010 Electric Fields Festival in November. The creative director, Ryan Stec, and my Algonquin College Research supervisor James Acres asked that I create a large projection that could be interacted with using cell-phones. After some daydreaming and some early sketching I arrived at the concept of an Alien Cube floating in front of Ottawa’s Rideau Centre asking passers-by questions of thought about the human race such as “what is love?” or “what is war?”
During one of my classes at Carleton we were tasked with creating an interactive installation a few months ago. Though this project is a bit old now ( before the music visualizations ) I figured it might still be interesting to post as many of the lessons learned in this project were used to better optimize following projects.
