III. Installation - Outline

The final deliverable part of my project is a proposal for an installation comprising five Macromedia Flash movies to be projected along one large wall. All of the movies run indefinitely as continuous loops. The two movies at either end display random words and images as overlays thus creating a constantly changing narrative. The three central movies are interactive. Ultrasonic sensors, placed close to the screen and facing out towards the viewer, continuously monitor the viewer’s position and adjust parameters, which alter the appearance of the movie.

In order to achieve this it was necessary to find a means to allow the sensor technology to pass data in a form that could be understood by Flash. As far as I am aware using ultrasonic sensors to directly control elements within Flash movies has not been done this way before. This is what made this part of the project both nerve-racking and challenging.
