The systems were comprised of three separate installations. The Not Alone was built using Raspberry Pi which connects to led arrays, PIR sensors, and IoT comm protocols. PIR sensor senses every movement of attendance that sends message and light up the LEDs on another city simultaneously. People from different country could wave and try to communicate with each other from the "wormhole" projection that connects people in two countries. The camera and projection system was developed using a custom Touchdesigner program.
"The Under The Sun" were built using Touchdesigner, connecting multi-arrays of big screens into the PC. The screen and its feeds were aligned with circular cutouts that were showing eyes videos, record the visitors who peek through the peephole at the end of staircases. The eyes recorded from the two countries were randomly distributed to the cutouts wall simultaneously.
The A Thousand and One Martian were built using Touchdesigner, playing a sequence of videos and narrations. The visitors are part of the stories when the videos are changed by the feed of the camera at site and/or camera at the other country.
