Window Installation at the New York Mikimoto store during the 2014 Holiday Season
Fireflies dance over a paper garden creating an illusion of an underwater fairy tale.
Jennifer Wen Ma was tasked with creating the Holiday display for the Mikimoto store as a part of a larger partnership Mikimoto maintains with the Asian Cultural Council. We took inspiration from the installation Opera Paradise Interrupted we were working on. I used a version of Cocuyo, the software I created for the Opera, to generate the fireflies that we then projected on to the paper garden. I also designed the projection system and created a tiny video player to project these videos from a very small space within the wall.

Interactive installation at Aqua Art during Art Basel week, Miami FL
Interactive installation using cameras, video, and custom software. Reminiscent of Magritte’s painting by the same name, the installation is a mirror that does not display the viewers face, but the back of their heads, while everything else is reflected correctly.
