Spiders from Outer Space

Based on research and interpretations of some of the trends happening in the AR space, this is a prototype of an experience in which virtual characters have control over some aspects of the physical world in order to create the illusion that suspends disbelief.

Concept:

An immersive installation where virtual bugs move physical elements.

The idea was to create a scene where virtual and physical elements would interact together, as if they were all part of the conventional-reality, leaving the spectator unsure of what is real and what is not.

Set up in a community working room with a projector mounted on top of a desk, spiders are crawling over a table. The installation is initiated when someone places food on the desk. A few seconds later, the potato chips package starts moving, making surprising noises and moves. Insects will then come out of it and start to chase the food on the desk.
