Project Info

The Importance of Kinections was a collaboration between Turner and Sapient Razorfish. The work explored how differently people behave in a public space during a tedX event. The video was recorded using a Kinect in the morning and edited within and hour and presented as a bumper video between talks.  The bumper video was for TedX Sydney 2012 and used crowd recording to create particle cloud interactions.
