Winter in Umeå

August 2013 (3weeks) | Team: Jacob Cyriac, Yui Komatsu | Humlab, Umeå University

This is the third shadow project inspired by Nordic winter in Umeå Sweden. It started as an experimental project with everyday experience with various types of users. It captures shadow's movements by Kinect and lets people communicate with falling snow. We considered playing with shadows extending people’s bodies onto the digital world and a link of their gesture.
Does the experience enable a stronger connection between people and a virtual world? What would a virtual world remind you?
