interactive two monitor art piece

Nov 29 2009 | 6:31 pm

I have a couple months of experience behind my belt with max but am still very new to it. I am attempting to create an interactive art piece using this program and do not really know where to start. This is the objectives of the project:

there will be two monitors: 1. user interaction 2. display results from user interaction

1: The first monitor will have three choices for the user to choose from- whether they normally drive, carpool, or walk/bike to work

after they click on their option, I would like the second screen to display

2: colored feet print walking around the screen (red for driving, orange carpooling and green for walking/biking). I would like the footprints to eventually fade but at different rates to display the the effect of our carbon footprint.

If anyone has any advice especially concerning how I can have the two screens communicate with one another I will be regularly checking this forum.

Make a subpatch that you will display on the second screen. Use the send and receive objects to send messages from the first patch (that will be on the first screen) to the subpatch and it will work. This is of coure if you are using the same computer for both screens.
