Fourth year design students students Edison Chen and Yumi Young have created a created a large scale interactive data visualisation for the Digital Wall at Central Park. The Digital Wall is currently Australia’s largest interactive display in a retail space.
The DreaMe concept by Chen and Young is a platform that re-imagines the boundaries between the digital realm and reality, providing tangibility within the media experience through the visual representation of data.
Central Park & DreaMe have digitised The Living Mall which is responsive to real-time data, paralleling the actual time and weather conditions of Sydney. Characters have also been placed in the environment to 'live' on the screen, adding to the liveliness of the wall.
DreaMe goes live today as part of the 7mm Pitch curatorial program at Central Park, and is the result of an industry partnership with Ramus Illuminations and 'Frasers' Property.
