Meet New Media Artist & Creative Techie, Michael P. Allison #NoCriticsJustArtists

Firewall is an interactive audio/visual experience created with Aaron Sherwood for the Purring Tigernew media experimental dance group. A stretched sheet of spandex acts as a performance membrane that when pushed into creates fire-like visuals and expressively plays music. The sounds heard in the documentation video are the actual sounds produced by Firewall. The further you press into the membrane the faster and more intense the piano score becomes. Depth information is captured using a Kinect camera which is used to manipulate the audio/visual experience based on touch.
