As part of Squidsoup we have been working on Aurora Imaginaris. This projects uses miniature projection technology coupled with inventive use of Raspberry Pi hardware, to create a tiny immersive work.
My part in this was developing the system to detect, align and re-project content onto the object. The Squidsoup colabarors helped in the conception design and delivery of the project.

Aurora Imaginaris is, or represents, a fictional material emergent from digital media and nanotech physical processes. It is fake, imagined, not what it seems, yet beguiling and beautiful. It embodies both media and physical material, but as a hybrid substance does it even exist at all?
