Description

During a one week workshop, me and my team conceived Abymes, an immersive and interactive experience that captivates the user in a beautiful but dangerous atmosphere. We built and coded a remote control with a Micro:bit card and Processing, to project animations on a reflecting dichroid paper surface and to control the colors of the animations. The galactic sound design and the saturated visual identity of the installation refer to one of my favourite movies, Blade Runner, whereas the triangular reflections and the narcissic visual satisfaction offered by the experience are inspired by another great film, Neon Demon.
