ABOUT

This interactive 360 degree video project was a collaboration with Jamie Banes and Liz Hickok.


It has been show in at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek, CA as well as the CodeArt Festival in Palo Alto, CA.


Inundation is a combination of a dynamic, interactive large-scale projection and a sculptural installation with custom sound design by Conner Jones.


The projection features a video of a surreal cityscape that slowly floods and grows tree-like crystals. While the scene is larger-than-life, it stemmed from a hand-built sculpture placed inside an enclosed set, with a 360-degree camera recording the crystal growth through time-lapse photography.


Viewers engage with a tablet, enabled with a custom-designed app that allows them to pan, zoom, and control what is projected on the wall.
