The scanning process develops with a sequence of slow vertical and horizontal scannings, memorizing the basic data informations, continuing with detail and intense scanning sequences, the beamed light passes through the audience.
Each person generates their own individual sound and video images.
The scanning process begins with beaming a very low speed structured light on the subject. It’s recaptured by an high resolution sensor, while a network of five computers are processing the captured light and elaborating the scanned data in realtime. The software has been especially developed by the artists: it is based on computer vision algorithms and a special kind of neural network to generate both visual and audible results.
ScanAudience is a performance in which the audience becomes the protagonist of the show, but at the same time experiencing a new sonorous and visual dimension under the artists direction.
