This paper presents a framework for processing visual and auditory textures in an augmented reality environment that enables real-time artistic creativity without imposing predefined interaction rules or constraints. It integrates multiple problem domain knowledge in sonification, real-time rendering, object tracking and object recognition in a collaborative art installation using a familiar Carom Billiard game table, motion tracking cameras, a table-top digital projector and a digital audio installation. A demonstrator was presented at a 10-day annual innovation exhibition in Belgium and was perceived as innovative, intuitive and very easy to interact with.
