Interactive Garden Art Installation

Rainbows Children’s Hospice Garden installation project serves as an innovative garden that uses an advanced technology to detect audiences passing by the webcam. The supporting directional sound was also in place to encourage passersby to pause and look at the garden. The webcam then tracked the gender of the passersby, followed by series of animations was triggered and projected onto the acrylic screen.

A project collaboration amongst several organisations namely Retail Lab, De Montfort University with garden design team, Second Nature to produce their first interactive digital installation at the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show 2012 , held in London. The project ultimately was awarded Silver Medal under the Fresh category.

My contribution in this project was to create series of animations that reflects the mood of the garden. The details on artwork produced were minimal and used mostly silhouettes to emphasize the blending of plants and the digital installation, and to further create the contrast between them.
