Snow Drops

Installation, Sendai Mediatheque|2010
An original installation work exhibited for the event Plaza of Light at Sendai Mediatheque. It is an interactive motion graphics work on the theme of snow, produced in collaboration with OGATA, an internationally renowned space design company based in Sendai. What comes to view when seen from the front is a striking silhouetted scene of piling snow. Going around the back however, one realizes that this snow is but an illusionary entity. This snow falls only within the imagination, and its coldness could only be felt by the heart. It is a work that gently betrays the viewer.

About the Exhibition
The production team aimed for an interactive design work that pursued for the natural integration of the physical furniture and the illusionary visual. The focus was on how to enable the viewer to unconsciously imagine the snow, by seeking for affective techniques that avoided over assertive expressions. New technical challenges had been carried out behind the scenes, including the application of advanced hydrodynamics-based algorithms, and the use of the depth sensing camera Kinect.
