Abstract

“The lives of others” is an interactive audiovisual installation that is based on a voyeuristic approach of the binomial inside / outside and private / public, between the finished product presentable to the public and the mechanism that generates it.

The use of sensors has been used in many artistic interactive installations to augment the interaction between the public and a specific environment. Audience participation and sensor technology can create visualizations and sound.

Previous work (Antonio et al., 2017) has explore interactive movie installation with the project “Characters looking for a spect-actor” that seeks to explore new forms of non-intrusive interaction in interactive movies, while at the same time aims to give the spectator on-the-fly control over the film editing. “Characters looking for a spect-actor” explore the possibility of using 3D sensors and mobile devices as interfaces to generate effective interaction mechanisms in interactive films.
