Lumarca is a truly volumetric display, which provides compelling content in 3D.

My thesis is innovating a new process for creating a volumetric display and developing compelling content for it. The Lumarca is a truly volumetric display which allows viewers to see 3 dimensional images. The system requires only a computer, a projector, and common materials found at most hardware stores. This provides an affordable platform for artists to design compelling content that conveys information, narrative, and aesthetic information in a new way. I've developed several dynamic and interactive pieces and games.


Lumarca library (using Processing and OpenGL), computer, projector, 2 pieces of plexi, some supports, and a whole mess of magnets and yarn.
