The Secret Garden is the first project publicly displayed under my company, No Fun Studio, utilizing dual projection mapping & body tracking depth sensors to bring life to this immersive space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The Secret Garden
DEC. 2020 — JAN. 2020
The Secret Garden explores a form of augmented reality where the user interacts with their reflection in a flowing particle simulation, building Delaunay triangulations that resemble the structure of plants from the position of their hands. The floor projection controls interaction using aerial blob tracking and a physics engine to displace particles based off momentum & velocity dispersing the interactive meadow at their feet. I developed this realtime project in TouchDesigner with the art direction of Gonzo Gelso
VR Experience is developed to render realtime in TouchDesigner.
Hardware used: Oculus Rift, Leap Motion.
Analyzing the different frequencies of audio wavelengths, this VR experience comes to life with music. Mapping different parameters from the generative based elements in the 3D virtual environment to certain aspects of sound. Using this method instead of traditional MIDI or OSC input allows for application with all live & recorded music. To further immerse the user, intergration of a Leap Motion was added to track the users hands & give a more natural experience interacting with the virtual soundscape.
