Konstruct is an investigation into generative art using Augmented Reality. It is a sound reactive AR experience for the iPhone that allows you to create virtual sculptures by speaking, whistling or blowing into the device's microphone. A variety of 3D shapes, colours and effects can be combined to build an endless collection of structures.
Konstruct was created and built by James Alliban in 2011. I created the UI, website and logo - a minimal, abstract and versatile shape, inspired by the spikes and sharp lines formed by the app.
The app has received 20,000 downloads and has been a popular global hit at exhibitions, festivals and schools promoting art and technology.
