{nest} is a collaborative, interactive installation for the 2011 SIGGRAPH Conference in Vancouver, Canada.

The theme “home” is explored by creating a nest around a person on a bed. As you grow still and drop off to sleep, a visualization projected onto the surface of the bed starts to take shape. Slowly, strand-by-strand, a digital image of a nest is formed around the shape of your body. When you stir and shift position, the nest comes apart, only to form again as you grow still.

The system uses touch sensors embedded in the mattress to detect the placement of a person or persons in the bed. Java and Processing code construct and deconstruct the nest which is projected onto the bed from above.

Made in collaboration with Holly Schmidt, Bryan Rite & Morgan Raucsher
