M4 PROJECT ‘STARSTRUCK’

Well hello!

The final model of this year has arrived and what has brought it to us?
Well I have worked now for several weeks on installation:
Starstruck is an installation designed around the Gogbot Festival of 2017 as its setting. The theme of the festival is ‘Intergalactic’ and for our installation, we chose the sub-theme ‘Steering the Universe.’ We chose this because we want to probe the idea for a user to look up at the night sky and have the ability to move the stars, planets, and celestial objects around, in order to ‘reshape the sky’.

In the photos you see a visualization of the installation, our created night sky and our group icon.

We have created the night sky in Maya 2017 and exported it to Unity. In Unity a program has been written so that through a Kinect V2 the night sky can be adjusted. If you reach out to a star or planet the Kinect will pick up your movement and through this you are able to grab a star and give it a different place in our created universe.

If you like what you hear, come and have a look at our installation at the Smart experience lab in the Zilverling at 6-7-2017 from 13:30 till 16:30.

See you there!
