3D PROJECTION MAPPING

PROJECT YEAR: 2019

How is the forest of the future going to be like? Is it still existing? Or is it just a distant memory of the past...

Questions like these came to my mind when working on this project. I decided to show how an excursion into the forest might look like in the near future. In this scenario, being in the woods is just a memory. Real nature does not exist anymore. It is only accessible through modern technology.

I designed the layout of the canvas and built it from wood. Animations were created to exactly fit the shapes of the canvas. This way the projection gets a subtle 3D effect.

Apart from a few rocks, trees, the bike and the hydrant I modelled, textured and animated all objects by myself. I also designed the graffities and billboards as well as the sounds.

The exhibition of this installation called "Magic Forest" took place in Germering (Bavaria, Germany) in January 2019.
