Composition on the Table
is a series of artwork which represent the concept of Minex Reality.
Four white tables have various user interfaces such as switches,
dials, turn-tables and sliding boards that a player can touch. Projectors
suspended from the ceiling project computer generated images onto
the tables and interfaces. Projected images change in real time
as if they were physically attached to the interfaces when players
operate them. Also sounds are produced in relation to the movement
of images. Since the interfaces have close relation to the reaction
of images, players can operate images and sounds in the same way
when he/she operates ordinary interfaces and gradually feels these
illusions as equivalent as the actual objects.
The aim of these works
is to allow players and audiences to share the world of Mixed Reality
thus produced and collaborate to create images and sounds interactively.
