Hailed by The Australian as the country’s best modern dance company, choreographer Gideon Obarzanek’s Chunky Move dazzles audiences with its use of site-specific installations and interactive sound and light technologies. Obarzanek’s avant-garde performances explore the tensions between the rational world we live in and richness of our imagination.

“”Little Magic Stories” is the latest project by Chris O’Shea, with aim to encourage children to use their creativity to bring stories to life. The installation allows them to create a performance from within their imagination, on stage, in front of an audience of family and friends.” Text by Creative Application Network
Chris achieved all this by using the Musion Eyeliner holographic projection system, An Xbox Kinect camera and the software used was C++, openFrameworks, openCV and Box2D.
The team (Jason McDermott and Liam Ryan (of Arup) and Frank Maguire) designed Social Firefly, a community of friendly intelligent lights that influence one another. The fireflies are programmed to respond to light from their neighbors, popular fireflies become highly influential, whilst isolated fireflies must work harder to reach their friends. By shining lights on to the fireflies, audience members speak the same language and influence the interaction between community members. Text by Creative Application Network.
