Hora

This prototype physical installation explores the relationship between one’s space in the physical realm and how it relates to the passage of time. Its name is inspired by several elements of itself. Hora is of course the Spanish word for hour, which is in reference to the tunnel's time component. Said aloud, hora also sounds like aura. The visuals within the installation are reminiscent of the mysterious, colorful display of light one associates with an aura.

Development

Hora is a unique combination of materials. The projection scrim is a plastic paint drop cloths. Those are supported by CPVC piping bent into an arch. To power the interactivity: Data from a Kinect located in the back is collected by Processing and sent to MAX via OSC. MAX uses that distance data to scrub video in real time, which is then projected.
