River Alive

Underwater Ecosystem with Physical Inputs and Curved Projection

The Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia tasked Bluecadet to design interactive experiences for River Aliveā€”a new exhibit about the ecosystem of the Delaware watershed.

The centerpiece installation, Continuum Wall, is a projection against an s-curved wall with directional audio and physical input where visitors can spin, blow and drum to interact with the wall.

As the Tech Director during the production phase of this project, I oversaw systems design in coordination with our AV partner, fabrication, engineering and protocol selection with our electrical engineering partner, project planning and the final installation.

Mapping the two projectors to the convex and concave wall required a good amount of on-site iteration in Barco's projector software, custom resolution and timing settings for the Nvidia workstation GPUs and integration with Nvidia's Mosaic CLI utility.
