Final Project: Sky Reverie v.2.0

“Everytime you look at a star you are looking at the thoughts of everyone who looked at it before you.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Sky Reverie V.2.0 is an immersive installation. People can enter inside of immersive space with cloud-shape. In ‘Sky Reverie’, visitors may enjoy visual and audio elements while physically playing with and in a inflated plastic cloud. When they stretch their hands up inside this cloud, as if they’re whispering their hopes to the sky, hundreds of stars fall into line to create a constellation triggered by fluctuations of viewers’ shadows.
