Influenced by the collaborative engagement of the Ouija Board Planchette, these controllers are designed to be used by 2 users together, to glide over a touch-sensitive screen. It allows the users to engage with each other, to collectively arrive at an answer to the questions being asked. Users must rest their fingers upon the perforated metal components of the controller in order for it to be sensed by the technology.
This project was shown at Sundance Film Festival 2018, and was created by a large group of artists, producers and technologists. I was responsible for the planchettes. Please see project website for full list of people involved in the project. Frankenstein AI is an experimental theatrical experience with its own AI entity that is learning from its visitors about the world.
