Many art installations rely on camera-based audiovisual interactions, and this commonly requires specialized hardware and software. Consequently, audiovisual installations are usually restricted to wealthier areas, in which the specialized equipment can be afforded and properly hosted. In countries with an evident income unbalance linked to location, the geographic restriction leads to an audience restriction. In this work, we present the development of a web-deployed composition tool for audiovisual interactions that runs on the client side and does not require installing any additional software. Simultaneously, it provides visual feedback that can aid the audience to understand the experience. Consequently, the tool can be used to compose audiovisual interactions that reach a large audience via web. We further explore the tool by composing the audiovisual installation Homino-idea. The installation is inspired by the interactions between humans and the environment, and can be either shown in art venues or used online.
