Opal: An Immersive Light Bath

"“Opal” is an immersive light bath shared between four people. In this experience participants get to relax in a crystal pool and interact with colorful animations that are projected onto their bodies. This installation is a mix of fine arts, animation, and tech. All the crystal sculptures were handmade and sculpted from styrofoam, the projected visuals are a mix of 2D and 3D animation, and the interactions were created using an Xbox Kinect and a software called TouchDesigner.​

Kaley Cho created real-time graphics and implemented motion detection with TouchDesigner. She also created rendered graphics with Cinema4D and blended them with the real-time graphics created in TouchDesigner.
