Connect - Using Paper Sunflowers For Interactive Projection Mapping
South Korean artist JOCHANA created another installation using the Touch Board and Electric Paint. This time, her canvas were paper sunflowers.
This isn't JOCHANA's first interactive installation using the Touch Board: Relaxation was her initial debut, presented at the Yeoksam Cultural Center in Gangnam, Seoul. Her second installation Connect was exihibited at Gwangmyeong Cultural Center, Gyeonggi-do.
The motivation behind the installation was the disconnection we are witnessing globally. Communication and exchange are fundamental to create connection and JOCHANA wanted to highlight this in a humorous and entertaining way.
She made giant paper sunflowers to use as canvases and small paper sunflowers to act as touch sensors. The small sunflowers were painted with Electric Paint and were connected to the Touch Board. By touching the flowers, the audience triggered one animation after another that was mapped onto the giant sunflower.
Overall the installation took about 1 week to create, all the way from planning to installation. JOCHANA used MadMapper for mapping the animations and the animations themselves were made with After Effects.
The installation was well received by people of all ages, especially by kids, who loved it the most.
