It intends to explore the perception of the virtual space, relating it to the sculptural geometry of the physical space, combining them through the enjoyment of sounds and images that are created in realtime according to the choices the visitor makes.
Tripit is an interactive installation in which the visitor is invited to create an aural and visual experience through the placement of light-emitting spheres on top of triangular pyramids along a triangular grid. The placement of the spheres is detected in realtime by a camera and used as input for a program running on a computer that synthesizes images and sounds, according to a virtual world model. By establishing a connection between the spheres, the visual patterns and the sounds, the visitors will discover the rules behind the simulation and will be able to explore this virtual world.
