Interactive facade projection at the Culture Night Breda


During the Culture Night Rnul presented an interactive projection on the building of KOP in Breda. By a video tracking system the visitors were tracked in front of the building where they could discover and create a virtual layer of the building. With an individual corresponding pointer on the building visitors could activate elements in the building like growing an ivy, play with a cat and discover what happening behind the curtains. Together the visitors create a beautiful stately building, which over time will be abruptly disturbed by a randomly chosen visitor whose pointer turns into a shooting sight…

How did this project use Max?

The system was entirely made with Max. A lot of OpenGL layers could be controlled individually by the visitors. The system ran on a 8 core Mac Pro, each processor had it own patch to get the maximum power of the computer. The patches communicated through UDP.
