2007 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
Invisible Rooms will be a user-controlled sound installation employing wireless surround-sound headphones. Participants will each customize a unique experience by navigating the installation space. Using computer-vision tracking, unique sound content is mapped to different areas of the room. Simply by walking around, each user will pass in and out of different sonic spaces. If they stop in an area of the room, they will continue to inhabit that sound space. The overall effect will be intimate and mysterious.
