This project is my understanding towards the relationship between humanity and technology, it is also an installation which is a challenge towards traditional 2D interface display. By designing this installation, I try to convert the 2D interface design into a 3D motional interface display by using processing, ardiuno and distance sensors.
I was inspired by the relationship between humanity and technology. Now with the development of technology, some people think that technology is trying to control people. Humans are more relying on technologies. For example, calculators make calculations easier but people are losing their brain calculation skills; the usage of Internet makes people can't leave their laptops or cellphones for a single day.
Human creates technology, but now they are concerning about being controlled by technology. But seeing from a different perspective, humans are controlling themselves.
In this project, I use a marionette character theme photography to represent human beings. At the same time there is an invisible string-technology, which is controlling them. By developing an interactive installation that can control the motion of the marionette pictures, the above concept can be realized in this project.
By using the medium of ardiuno and distance sensors, the installation can be interacted with people. By changing their finger distances above the installation, the pictures that appears on the screen change in positions according to the finger signals.
