The task of the semester project was to develop a concept for an immersive experience for the excavation site of the German Protestant Church of the Redeemer. The goal was to spark interest in the minds of the visitors for the excavation site and church. Our five-member group created an immersive audio-visual experience for the visitors while giving brief hints of the history behind the finds and installations. Five different "mood areas" react with light and sound to human interaction. Each area transfers an unique, nearly transcendental experience and should encourage the visitor to get informed about the historic value of the church and the excavation site. The installation can be installed and modified in the Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem.

 

For this project we used the Microsoft Kinect, a light system controlled by Arduino and vvvv as programming environment. The project was concluded within 5 months. Involved in idea, research, concept and sound design.
