Wall of Rain is a photosensitive and interactive installation where the user disturbs the peace of the forest. He is lost in the dark and only raindrops lead him to distinguish his body. His image is degraded, it appears only in fragments until it no longer resembles a human figure.
Charles Bail developed a sketch on processing. Combined with a kinect and the library SimpleOpenni he’s able to capture the user’s form. He uses video projection to make his fragmented image appear.
This installation is completely autonomous since the weather changes automatically. The animation of the environnement was made on after effects. The sound design is the result of a collaboration with Thomas Leblanc, french sound designer living in Lyon who helped Charles to get this magic atmosphere.
