This piece was made during my stay at Hotpixel for Met Mex in the Metals Museum educational space focused on the history, processes and uses of metals. The main objective for this project was to find a simple way to show the process of refinery of silver, gold and zinc. We came up with a reactive table surface that will be intuitive for the user and will display information about the stages for the removal of a metals matter in a very visual and comprehensible way.
The reactive surface of this interactive table works through the use of a kinect camera that activates when a user is detected and displays modules of the individual stages of refinery through dynamic animations and information.
This project was published in Create Digital Motion a respected blog for art, misc and technology.
