I wanted to experiment with creating sound via processing. I thought of an idea that also incorporates the concept of demonstrating human interaction. My idea involves the camera picking up when someone walks past by registering the brightness of the camera picture, taking one pixel from the middle of the screen and analysing that against the previous capture. If it is darker it means someone has walked past and a dot will appear, representing the person who walked past. This dot will move around the screen making it’s own path and noise. When another person walks past, another dot will appear and make its own path and a different pitch of noise. If the dots collide they bounce off and the impact makes another noise. This project represents how we are constantly surrounded by people everyday, the interactions we have can be minimal and yet our paths can cross at any time. It could also be a comment on how our paths can always cross but never interact.
