Themed Installation

Overview:

This art installation peice was designed and built for the Greenwaves Festival at the University of Central Florida's campus. Shown, are the first concept sketches, 3d mockups and finished project at the festival. The piece was built to bring awareness to the problem of trash in our oceans, and how picking up after yourself at the beach can help prevent many problems that we see today below the ocean's suface as well as the trash that floats on top of the ocean's surface. This installation is a combination of physical display connected to a virtual "under the sea" video game which is controlled when participants pick up the trash, and place it in the appropriate trash chute.

The concept was to immerse the participant into the sea, by creating an underwater experience while picking up the trash. Most people don't realize what happens to their trash once the tide brings it out to sea, so it was important that we create the experience by building the base to appear as the ocean floor, and place blue water above their heads. The sunlight passing through the water above, created a bueatiful caustic effect on the main playing surface, and along with underwater sound effects and the underwater video game, we successfully created the immersive experience.
