I'm fairly new to Arduino, and would really appreciate any help with this project. I have a group exhibition in Paris in October, and this is a brief description of the work I want to show;
Marine protected areas are a key tool for protecting marine ecosystems. Covering 7.65% of the world’s ocean surface, they are often implemented to prevent resources from being over-exploited and habitats from being degraded. Marine protected areas have a social dimension. They represent a set of rules that seek to govern human activities and behaviour within a particular geographical space. Failure to comply with these rules can undermine the success of a marine protected area. This artwork focuses on the human dimensions of marine protected areas by exploring some of their social effects. Incorporating video footage of underwater landscapes captured whilst undertaking applied research, this work looks at the social implications of marine protected areas and how people interact with nature.
• Artwork changes based on where people move (how close they are to the wall)
Through this, members of the audience become part of or a new dimension to the artwork.
I want to achieve this by using an ultrasonic (or several) sensor and 'if.. then' coding to change what is projected in the space. For example, if someone is 4m away from the sensor x slide of the powerpoint is projected, 3m y slide, 2m z slide etc.
Any tips for how best to approach this would be very much appreciated! I'm a bit clueless about hardware in terms of linking up a projector to the arduino etc.
