This is a prototype of an idea I had years ago that features a dancer inside of a ring of rain. There's a projector opposite the camera, and as the dancer moves, a Kinect picks up the movement and translates the movement into visual patterns. I wrote the code in Processing, spending a lot of time tweaking the motion detection to ignore the water drops, and getting the feel of the projection right. I would eventually like to realize this as a fully choreographed narrative with two dancers. The rain would ideally be more of a character as well.
