“MADAME Universe” is a mind and gesture controlled image database installation.
The unique sensual control experience enables the user to reveal unexpected relations inside the visual data. Multiple image folders and layers shift their appearance in various patterns and structures over time, while the user controls speed, direction, image sizes, the zoomlevel and even alters the structural layout through the selection of images.
Structural layouts can be interpreted from classical image file/folder structures and transformed by mathematical equations, 3d dimensional objects(also animated) and through kinect hardware even by the user her-/himself. The variable program layout also allows additional sound input to use the “Universe” as a visual tool for any kind of event.
“Madame Universe” was first presented at the 2011 TEDx event in Vienna
