Exhibit around coral reef bleaching.
Connected Coral integrates physical and digital elements in a visualization of the environmental impacts on reefs. This complex projection mapping uses multiple projectors, angled mirrors, and a motion sensor to create an interactive digital skin on a complex three-dimensional surface. Viewers interacted with the piece via a motion sensor.
My personal role was to fabricate the reef and container to hold the mirrors and projection system. Emily Salvador designed the animations and mapping software. I wrote a script to digest a point cloud model of the reef and slice it into machinable components on a CNC machine.
This project was created through the Open Ocean Initiative and was displayed at the MIT Museum.
