An interactive web application
Three 3D ‘sprites’
Based on a Tree Story (BOATS) was an interactive web app exhibited in Finsbury Park, and was the chosen artwork from the People’s Park Plinth (PPP) vote. You can find out more about our work for PPP here.
We worked closely with artist Bones Tan Jones & Hervisions to produce this interactive fantasy experience centred around the trees of Finsbury Park. The aim of our web application was to encourage park visitors to navigate through the park in unexpected ways, whilst simultaneously listening to the fictional stories of the trees around them. These stories were ‘translated’ and communicated by three mystical AR sprites. These fictional sprite characters offered the user an opportunity to learn about the ecologies of the park through interactive modes of storytelling and walking rituals.
The visual identity took its roots from mystical symbolism - merging and twisting its way into technology computer game-esque aesthetics.Image Credits: Furtherfield Gallery
