Dancing House: Interactive Projection Mapping Crumbles House to Movement

As part of the Light Festival in Gent, going on from now until February 1, artist Klaus Obermaier is presenting Dancing House, an interactive projection mapping and sound installation that lets people distort a house based on their movement. While standing in front of the building on which the projection is displayed, visitors are encouraged to sway or move their arms back and forth as their bodies change the look of the building's facade. Watch as visitors make the building crumble or simulate the look and sound of wind. This video was taken at the Nuit Blanche in Kosice, Slovakia in 2014.

This will be the third light festival for Ghent, Belgium. Obermaier is only one of 44 different light artists that are showing their art this year. In previous years, the light festival welcomed over half a million visitors. The Guardian previously named Ghent one of Europe's top 10 light art festivals.
