Sketch

We had many interesting ideas that didn't turn out to be real, but here are the sketches we made through our development process.

System

There were many things we had to develop, such as a motion sensor that could be durable outdoors, and a design for a light bulb with rain protection. 


For the outdoor sensors, we modified some of the already reliable and proven security sensors so that the information could be acquired by a PC, and for the lighting, we used Phillips HUE, which can change color via wifi, and zoned it to each area so that no more wires than for electrical work were needed. 


The main content was also designed to run for at least five years, so we used HP workstations to ensure a durable hardware setup for long-term operation.

Diagram

 In directing a large scale illumination, there were many things that had to be designed in advance. Among them, the design of the overall color flow was particularly important. 


By specifying the flow of colors in advance, it was easier to discuss what we wanted the visitors to experience in each area. 


Also rendering scenes in 3D to share what exactly the experience is going to be, helped me communication with other who have no idea what was going to happen.

Synesthesia Hills

Immersive Illumination

 2018, I spent whole year designing this immersive illumination called Synesthesia Hills in Rurikei, Kyoto Area.


 I was personally asked to design a completely new interactive illumination using immersive technologies. The planning started at the beginning of 2018 and opened it in October 2018.


It was a large scale research and development project that took most of my year to complete, starting with the carving out of what used to be a wild mountain, zoning, narrative design of the visitor's experience, and researching and developing hardware's that could ne used open air.
