Star Canvas

Recreate the night sky

This is a R&D project for B-reel London 5 years anniversary. We build this dome and project the whole night sky in it. The stars are based on their actual position in the sky so we can see all the constellations.

And also this is the first project we try with Leap Motion, user is able to control the camera angle and also selecting the constellation via different hand gestures.

It was my first installation project and I was focusing on the visual and 3d part. The project is build with WebGL with a small 3D framework I created. The result if very satisfying and it is also a good R&D for us proving that Web technology can be used on installations.
