Title:

    "drop": An Interactive Art Installation with Water Drop Projection-Mapping

Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    This paper describes an interactive art installation titled “drop.” It is the first artwork using the Waterdrop Projection-Mapping (WPM) system, which animates levitating waterdrops. With this artwork, the anno lab team infuses physical characteristics into computer graphics and materializes them as tangible pixels. WPM consists of a waterdrop generator and an ultra high-speed projector. The team uses an ultra high-speed projector to cast stroboscopic spotlights mapping on waterdrops to create an optical illusion of animating each waterdrop individually. This is a new technique to show computer animation by animating levitating waterdrops. This technique explores a new horizon to create animations with tangible pixels that the viewer can touch physically.
