LEMURtron at Snug Harbor
Saturday, July 11, 2009 - Sunday, September 13, 2009
LEMUR presents its flagship installation, LEMURtron, at Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island.
The LEMURtron installation is comprised of approximately 15 musical robots arrayed about the gallery; a floor-projected video interface in the center of the gallery; and a motion tracking system which enables participants to control and interact with the robots.
The video projection consists of a rotating set of interactive scenarios. Each scenario enables users to interact with the robots in a different way. Users move within the floor screen, interacting with objects in the video projection. User movements are tracked by video camera, allowing a computer to sense their motion and move the video objects. In turn, the motion of the video objects is translated into sound and music from the robots.
The opening reception will be on Saturday, July 11 from 5 pm to 7 pm at the Newhouse Center.
