Experimental social video-game. Kinect, 120° screen, stereo sound system.
Synergie is a participatory audiovisual experience where participants are immersed in an 120 degree audio-visual world.
The audience, by moving their bodies, collectively controls the movement of the wings of a paper bird avatar. The avatar is “free” to fly in space and encounter different planet-like objects, with reactive qualities and distinctive behaviours.
A depth sensor observes the area where the spectators are sitting and extract parameters such as the distance from the camera or the amount of movement. Since these parameters are the result of a collective behaviour and series of actions it is not the individual who can control the audiovisual composition. Every participant can deliberately negotiate movements together with others or proceed independently with their own agenda. It is an exercise of perceiving the result of our own action on the media while being aware of what others are doing.
