DynaFleur - An Immersive Art Installation
This is by Douglas Story & Desdemona Enfield
Turn your volume up, music on, and set to midnight here.
Spanning an entire sim on Princeton University’s virtual campus, DynaFleur is the kind of experience that truly is possible only in Second Life.
DynaFleur presents the almost abstract close-up floral photography of Douglas Story in a very unusual way. The monumental and colourful installation is cradled by a specially commissioned landscape created by Poid Mahovlich.
As you walk (and fall) through it, you are immersed in the densely layered sound design of Dizzy Banjo which is tailored to accompany the movements of the elements of the piece that surround you, all of them moving and changing in response to your presence. This magic is powered by complex scripts written by the talented and energetic Desdemona Enfield, which in turn were based on the open-source Reflexive Architecture scripts made available by Keystone Bouchard and his group.
