WikiLetters – our special gift for 10 years Wikipedia!
15.01.11 Homebase, Berlin
Wikipedia articles of the last 10 years sputter out of you! Through every kind of motion, whether a booty dance or simple gesture, the visitor can write texts without typing and thinking.
We use the Wikipedia API to get data out of every single Article and send it over to the software we created in c++ using openframeworks. The Kinect provides video for the software to process in form of motion. Text is converted into a particle system and single letters loosen up by motion to rebuild a reasonable sentence on the top.
