The project presents a proposal of study for development of graduate trainee internship at McGill University. The research looks for solutions to increase the effectiveness of immersion and interaction between the visitors and the computer system in the context of interactive installations. To this purpose, we propose strategies of mapping and sonification of parameters obtained from the analysis of interactive gestures performed by visitors.
