We’ve certainly seen our share of Kinect hacks around here, but I have to say this is one I haven’t run across before. These dramatic photos were shot using the infrared 3D mapping dots that the Kinect projects, viewed through an infrared lens filter.
Artist Audrey Penven’s Dancing with Invisible Light collection consists of a series of Kinect-lit subjects, covered in celestial disco-dots generated by Microsoft’s popular motion gaming peripheral. Audrey put together these shots with the help of Aaron Muszalski, Mike Estee and Ian Baker.
You can check out the complete series of images over Audrey’s Flickr album, or better yet if you haveppen to be near Emeryville, California between April 1 and 29, you can see the originals up close and personal at the Pictopia Gallery .
Funny thing is that Audrey doesn’t even own a Kinect – she had to borrow one from a friend.
