We worked with Kate Keating Associates to create a playful animated video ribbon that is reactive to movement. It goes through three states: dandelion fluff flying, butterflies flapping, and pinwheels turning. Five cameras in the ceiling tracks people moving by and the faster they go, the faster the animation moves. As night falls, the background of the ribbon transitions to a night scene. BBI did all the custom camera tracking and animation software as well as designing and installing the AV hardware. One challenge with this project was coordinating in a hospital construction environment, which has very specific standards and requirements.
