Hawai'i Volcanoes Proposal

Proposal for the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park via the National Park Arts Foundation. An Interactive new media art experience was brought through concept / discovery stages. An elastane volcanic tunnel symbolising the goddess Pele transforms from stone to fire to flesh and back again with external projections. Features augmented reality lighting interaction via 6DOF positional tracked devices in the hands of the the observer. Utilises procedurally generated textures with normal, specular, and emit maps. Geometry deformation linked to kinetic movement. Conceived and designed in collaboration with artist Milky Sklar. Musical score composed by Landon Thomas.
