The first experience is the 360 Landscape, a 50’ x 30’ interactive projection-mapped ellipsoid space which surrounds visitors with an abstract representation of the topography of Los Angeles, as rendered from the viewpoint of the tower. We used Kinect sensor technology to detect presence and proximity of each visitor and based on where they stand, are presented with animated illustrations depicting different locations throughout the LA area.
A custom-fabricated railing hides a collection of LEDs which animate in front of visitors as they approach, drawing them toward the projection. Visitors move around the space at their own pace to crack open each gem and uncover playfully-animated graphics for points of interest that are visible from the top floor.
The ellipse also includes a highly-specialized video mode, facilitating playback of custom-produced content at up to 11,520 x 1,200 resolution, synchronized across two separate walls.
I designed the look and feel for the environment, sourced and art directed the illustration work, and animated the illustrations. To share creative, I built the environment in 3D using Cinema 4D. I also created maps for the placement of the illustrations.
