Moori allows audience members to participate actively in a performance. By incorporating a smart phone’s dynamic interface and SMS, users share their thoughts to a proposed question by a performer. Through text inputs, buttons, and multi-touch pads, user-data is processed to generate algorithmic audio and visuals—as well as manipulate the performer’s work. The result is a collaboration between performer and audience, a real-time audio-visual composition and a dramatic narrative.
Moori is an ongoing development project. Moori is was exhibited at NamJunePaik (NJP) Art Center in Korea as an interactive installation, and was presented at ACM Creativty & Cognition 2011. Currently it is developed at Harvestworks as part of the aritst-in-resident program.
