Projected Affection

Emily Ryan

Projected Affection is an interactive window display developed for AC Gears, New York’s premiere gadget boutique. The piece, created by NYU Graduate Student, Emily Ryan, reveals the hidden world of AC Gears by exploring a love story between the store’s two window mannequins. Employing projection mapping techniques and animations, their tale of unrequited love will unfold before the viewer’s eyes. By utilizing motion sensors to trigger the animations and incorporating facial recognition technology, users can actively take part in the installation.
