Part 2 - Project
Project Title Plasm: In the Breeze
Project Description (50 words maximum)
Remember that old tire swing from your youth?
"Plasm: In the Breeze" captures the full body
engagment of a swing with the enhancement of
swinging over a synthesized "creek".
Of course being synthetic means the creek has a
life of it's own...

Physical/Space Requirement
How much space will be required to display your project?
The swinging space should be about 20x30 feet.

Depending on whether the swings and projectors
are supported with a structure from the floor or
suspended from the ceiling might need an
additional 10 feet in both dimmension.

Needs to be in a slightly darkened area so the
floor projections are not washed out.

We will have some ambient sounds so a bit of
acoustic isolation will be needed.

Total power needs are 4 circuts:
- 2 20Amp drops for the two personal computers
and their monitors and speakers.

overhead projectors .
How much noise does this installation produce? [medium]
