Due to the corona crisis, the conference went online, and we decided to redesign the proposed physical installation into an online installation instead. The installation ran continuously from 21-25 July last year, and hundreds of people “came by” to interact with it.
I finally got around to edit a short (1-minute) video promo of the installation:
I have also made a short (10-minute) “behind the scenes” mini-documentary about the installation. Here researchers from RITMO, University of Oslo, talk about the setup featuring 6 self-playing guitars, 3 remote-controlled robots, and a 24/7 high-quality, low-latency, audiovisual stream.
We are planning a new installation for the RPPW conference this year. So if you are interested in exploring such an online installation live, please stay tuned.
