Final Major Project - Constellations
Client: University project / FMP
Art Direction: Nancy Slonims
As part of my university course, for my final major project I created a set of postcards based on various constellations. The postcards have poked holes where the stars would align, and with the help of a torch the constellation can be projected on the wall/ceiling.
Each postcard has a unique QR code connecting to a website where the story of the constellation can be found.
As an additional asset, I have designed an app that can scan the postcards and create an interactive AR visual, making the constellations come to life.
The story of the Gemini
According to the myth, only Pollux was immortal and when Castor got wounded, Pollux offered his immortality to his dying brother. Zeus then put them on the sky allowing them to always be together, and made them the brightest stars.
Legend says when sailors only see one of the brothers in the night sky, it brings bad luck and rough storms. However when they both shine, they are guarding the waters and ships.

Augmented reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information.
