Avian Attractor is a gestural projection combining depth images of viewers and pre-captured shots of birds in natural and architectural environment. Surface impressions of viewers merge with those of urban birds and procedural agents that extend their flight paths and trajectories. These moving images are both seen and seen through — motionscapes that combine figurative elements with cross-hatchings, tendrils and flocking agents. The Avian Attractor installation is supported by other art research activity that aims to provide tools for a diversity of users without programming skills or collaborators. This includes development of a point cloud camera-recorder and interface for non-programmers. Inspired by a bird feeder in a cold city, Avian Attractor uses off-the-shelf depth cameras and projection to generate a hybrid form of space where post-human embodiment can be explored and expanded.
