Custom software development, custom video player
Window Installation at the New York Mikimoto store during the 2014 Holiday Season
Fireflies dance over a paper garden creating an illusion of an underwater fairy tale.
Jennifer Wen Ma was tasked with creating the Holiday display for the Mikimoto store as a part of a larger partnership Mikimoto maintains with the Asian Cultural Council. We took inspiration from the installation Opera Paradise Interrupted we were working on. I used a version of Cocuyo, the software I created for the Opera, to generate the fireflies that we then projected on to the paper garden. I also designed the projection system and created a tiny video player to project these videos from a very small space within the wall.
