An interactive sandbox installation by design agency Tellart allows the public to "play God." The Terraform Table is a topographic experience that harnesses machine-learning algorithms to accurately respond to changes in its surface. The project displays an aerial view of landscapes and water bodies such as rivers and lakes.
The superimposed "relief map projection" responds to the gestures of the public. For example, if someone begins pailing sand in one space, the topographic interactive sandbox installation will eventually project a white cap of snow.
The data that is drawn for this project is, in fact, gathered from "a database of satellite imagery on Earth." This not only allows for an arty interactive experience but it also infuses some truth value into the project.
Tellart's Interactive Sandbox Installation Engages the Public
1. Interactive Topographic Installations - Using machine learning algorithms to respond to changes in surface and create unique experiences.
2. Satellite Data Infused Art Projects - Integrating satellite imagery data with art installations for interactive and educational experiences.
3. Gesture-responsive Projections - Interactive installations that respond to users' gestures and movements.
1. Art and Entertainment - Creating interactive experiences that combine art and technology.
2. Education - Incorporating technology and interactive experiences to enhance educational resources and engagement.
3. Tourism - Integrating interactive installations in tourist destinations to enhance the overall visitor experience.
