LumaFluid: A Responsive Environment to Stimulate Social Interaction in Public Spaces
LumaFluid is an interactive environment that explores new ways to stimulate emotional and social engagement through light. A vision system localizes people present in the LumaFluid square. Colored spotlights highlight each person and connections are drawn between neighboring visitors to underline and stimulate interpersonal communication. Two versions of the concept where deployed during the 2011 STRP Festival. In this paper we describe the conception and realization of the installation, and we discuss the insights collected during the event.
