Open Source Architecture as Architects

Fracture was a collaboration between John Carpenter, media artist, and Open Source Architecture to create an immersive, interactive environment for the Murmuration Festival in 2016. Housed within a black mass that is both familiar and strange, real-time interactive media senses and responds to the visitor’s body movement, creating a digitally generated projection in real space that is multiplied through a series of physical translucent fabric scrims to spatialize the kinetic image so that it can be simultaneously perceived and occupied.
