The Embedded Project: Architectural and Interactive Installation

HHD_FUN with Aaajiao (Xu Wenkai) created the Embedded Project, an architectural installation that interacts with Google Earth and allows visitors to observe places and virtual spaces around the world. Aside from internal interactivity, the external facade of the project is beautiful, appearing structurally strong with delicate luminosity and paper-like folds.

Motion sensors track the movements of audience members within the closed space of the Shanghai installation, and projectors respond by changing projected environment (from cities, to open fields, and other architectures embedded into the Google Earth projection). Altering the placement of ones body or the distance between viewers changes the perception of the space.
