NYX Visual ‘Electric Bit’

Another really cool project from our friends at NYX Visual- ‘Electric Bit’. Louis De Castro says they developed the concept to be shot on the back wall of a new very futuristic venue in Paris: l’Electric. “Our setup was done using a custom built quartz composer rig. It’s based on the “Tracked User” functionality of the kinect camera, importing only the silhouettes of the persons moving in front of it. The feed was pixelized according to the wall sculpture grid then used as a mask to play media content and interact with various effects (color, speed etc…). We then remapped the video feed using MadMapper. Creating a new surface for every pixel then mapping it to each pyramid, we covered the maximum space our video projector could provide. The result was a 8bit looking tracking funhouse installation played by the audience of the night.”
