Aaron Sherwood‘s Firewall is an interactive installation made of spandex (technically known as elastane fibers). The piece uses depth perception to respond with music and lights when it’s touched by the audience. The installation is part of a larger upcoming performance piece where dancers will touch the membrane-like structure that represents a metaphoric barrier between life and death.

The piece was developed in collaboration with artist and music contact specialist Mike Allison. They used various technologies like and a Kinect (to measure the depth of field) and Max/MSP software (a visual programming language for multimedia). The end-result is a dramatic, touchable light show. Watch the videos below to see people interacting with the installation.
