I just learned about some of Arcade Fire’s interactive projects that are simply amazing. Both projects involve videos produced in concert with Google Chrome Experiments.
The video for Reflektor uses the viewers smartphone or tablet to interact with a PC or laptop webcam to control the visual effects in the video.
The Wilderness Downtown generates a personalized multiscreen video based on an address input by the viewer.
I don’t actively browse the web as much as I used to, so I’m sure I’m late to the party.
Still, it’s exciting to see some hi-tech art with real emotion and passion running through it.
