POLLEN is an interactive 3D audio/visual installation for any number of computers connected to the network.
Specifically designed for large computer Lab, it aims at the regeneration of those spaces through the creation of a fully immersive multimedia art installation.

3D World
A 3D physics emulator library has been integrated into the 3D virtual world enabling pollen to collide and freely fly/bounce around. The four delimiting walls are fitted with narrow slits enabling the pollen to fly/bounce onto the adjacent computers (left/right/front/behind)

When the user move or pass in front of a computer the camera detects the movement triggering a small "earthquake" into the virtual environment, thus enabling the pollen to freely move as lifted in the wind.

Multichannel Audio
Each computer , connected to its own speaker placed right next to it, will trigger an algorithmically generated sound when receiving one or many pollen from its neighbors. The displacement of the computers/speakers is responsible for the
fully immersive 3D audio setup. Thus people can walk into the sound!.
