ENLIGHTEN 2013: Bugs and Plants on Questacon
Very exciting to see that the final projections are a match to the concepts and artwork.
Mapping Insects (BUGS): Texture and Environment
3D reconstructed insects from the Australian National Insect Collection, CSIRO. The insects are placed on a static visual plane that changes in timeframe onto the building and have a visual dynamic effect from both walls or at a corner.
Plants through an artistic 3D ‘lens’ and the complex structure of the plant, texture and DNA. A translated 3D model and simulated environment viewed as ‘internal’ landscape on external walls.
