Kunang-Kunang is an interactive installation based on the movement of fireflies mapped on a curtain of straws that creates an environment full of light. This project basically uses an unwanted waste material – plastic drinking straws, as a projection surface. The interactive element of this project uses human body movement.
Random colors appear and sounds emerge as the user comes into proximity with the straws. The whole idea of this interactive installation is to share the beauty of fireflies during the night, represented using the power of art and technology.
Softscape is a medium-scale interactive installation of a projection mapping on a soft surface, made from discarded materials such as plastic bags and office paper. Movement, when detected by sensors and a camera, triggers rhythmic sounds and visual patterns projected onto the soft surface.
The objective of the installation is to create an indoor interactive playground for the public. It can be your imaginative “soft garden”, nurturing a culture of creativity and innovation.
