Fabric is a multimedia interactive projection mapping onto a blackout fabric.
This piece begins as a rectangle of straight white lines, which blur and separate over time as someone steps onto it and moves. The interactivity is enabled by a Kinect sensor which picks up the average position of pixels detected above a certain depth threshold. The piece is projected onto a loose black heavy fabric which softly disperses the light and creates a true black, which enables the viewer to feel like they are causing a pool of darkness to form where they stand. The creasing and slight deformation of the fabric enhances the rippling line illusion.
Themes of topographical maps and ripping holes into the fabric of space are evoked. The audio element of Brownian noise that quietens when you stay still and becomes very violent as you leave the area of the fabric evokes the notion of ripping or sifting through a medium.
