Riding Waves, Chasing Dream 踏浪逐梦
Riding Waves, Chasing Dream was inspired by a set of Mickey logos collected by the designer. These logos are modeled on Steamboat Willie, the first Disney film and the first audio animation in the world. That is why Mickey is sailing towards the other end of the dream world on Steamboat Willie.
This work is an immersive projection work. It employed Houdini to rend Pacific scenes with a particle effect. Meanwhile, it calculated the wind speed and direction based on analyzing air traffic data in dynamic graphs to simulate the ocean environment in the Pacific Ocean.
After entering the space, the audience can use the astronomical telescope placed in the space to seek the little mickey that is sailing on stormy waves and running towards you. The designer also wishes to imply the perspective of seeking finer things and the path for seeking the unknown through the astronomical telescope.
