Spawn Scape

An interactive 3d model of salmon spawn counts. Installed at the ARTS gallery at King Street Station for the capstone showcase of my 2023 University Bridge Residency

Salmon Controlled by Joystick

Jump into life under the University Bridge with this 3d model of daily salmon spawning counts, interact with the custom salmon keyboard to switch between last year’s Chinook, Coho and Sockeye counts, and control the school with a joystick, visualizing the total count for each day of last year’s spawn. Made in TouchDesigner.
