Jelly Stars

you are a superstarthat is what you are
Who’s the star of the party?
You and your friends, of course!
Jellystars is a fun interactive installation that was debuted was at Winkel and Baltick’s New Years Eve celebration 2009/10. It was shortly after featured at Dark Disco by Mean Red Productions, and then the 2010 Beaux Arts Ball, held by the Architectural League of New York.
The computer generates a field of glittering sticky stars, often attaching to the silhouette of the starlet(s) on-screen, and then uses motion tracking to map the movement of the starlet as they move around (often dancing, or otherwise admiring) and the jellystars follow.
