I was approached by the City of Virginia Beach to investigate the possibilities for a large scale mapping installation on Atlantic Avenue. The initial discussion revolved around a 3 part series that could become a permanent installation.
First steps included a a large scale ambient light study of the entire area to identify structural opportunities. Next, after review, a site was chosen and testing began. I established a creative scope and submitted design for city review. Once in artistic alignment I began in earnest. For 2 months the design process was ongoing while testing was done biweekly on site.
On November 5th, at the Sea and Rescue Museum Park on Atlantic Avenue “Awakening”, the 6 minute animated projection mapping piece debuted to a crowd of a few thousand.
