Curtain of Light acts as a catalyst for dissolving barriers
and bringing people together through a common experience.

Custom software written in C++/OpenFrameworks analyzes people's motion, and a reactive line animation uses a physics engine to respond the the touch of participants as they approach and interact with the installation. Sound effects and samples are triggered in response to different events - such as when someone touches the line.
