Taichung World Flora Exposition Discovery Pavilion


團隊獲得卡爾吉特國際股份有限公司的邀約,參與 2018 台中國際花卉博覽會森林園區發現館的單元創作。發現館的設計理念為「在台中看見半個地球」,講述沿著大甲溪從海拔 0-3886M 的生態之旅。






Design



0-3886M


台灣位處於橫跨亞熱與熱帶的一個海島。
台中,這個島上的一個行政區,位處海平面的高美濕地開始,沿著大甲溪走至最高海拔的雪山,之間的海拔落差近四千米,造就了這個小地方的生態多樣性。

0-3886 成為了這件作品的敘事主軸,我們希望完成一個劇場,帶領觀眾透過生物的視野,在不同的尺度與角度,重新「發現」造物的巧妙與美好。



大甲溪


整個展館將 0-3886 分為五個海拔區塊,呼應大甲溪,以「水」貫穿。

於是我們選取了五個水字旁的字作為各海拔區塊的代表,分別是涵、沛、涓、澗、澄,將字的狀態轉化為視覺底蘊。牆面與地面的影像都以此為主軸作為切換。

為了加強海拔不斷攀升的感受,設計上使用了幾個手法,如「整體顏色色溫由暖轉為冷」,企圖透過視覺呈現體感溫度的改變,畫面從「海底開始到宇宙作結」與「不同海拔的生物接力出現」等。



涵|0 - 100M

探見海河交界豐富的生命力





沛|100 - 500M

認識水、植物與人的關係,人文發展




涓|500 - 1000M

山林動物出沒區域, 與生物共存




澗|1000 - 1500M

植物種類多元,繁盛





澄|1500 - 3500M

山區雨量最充沛的地方





浩|宇宙、微觀






沉浸空間


除了貼合場館的策展脈絡,「高度沉浸且餘韻無窮」,是我們設下的設計任務,如何細膩的處理「感知」成為了最重要的課題。

眼、耳、身體為處理感知的三大項目。面對眼,影片無疑是一種很好的敘事形式,合作團隊夢想動畫,在理解整體概念後,以奇幻的視覺風格與流暢的節奏,完好的製作了一個引人入勝的影片,並投影在一個面寬十八米的曲面上。面對耳,知名的聲音工作者林強,以自然聲景為基底,配合影片的內容,進行整個空間的聲音營造。面對身體,我們將地板打造為一個具即時互動性的演算視覺,觀眾的位置與動態成為了畫面中的一部分。

透過以上形式的組合,完成了在各種感知上包覆感十足的沉浸空間。

Tanya Concert LEMURIA


Singer Tanya Chua's 2016 World Tour LEMURIA revolves around the myth that in ancient times the earth was stunningly beautiful and replete with abundance; disease and violence were absent. When disasters later struck, the Lemurians entered the center of the earth to protect our world. Chua is one of these messengers, who uses music to soothe human beings and teach us how to love with her voice.

We were responsible for the visual designs of the three electro-style opening songs: "Strange species" (異類的同類), "Aphasia"(失語者), and "Film"(菲林), as well as the ECODOT LED Display in "Blank Space" (空白格).






The Songs as the Essence


In the beginning of the creation process, the team talked about how the melodies and lyrics of the three songs made us feel and how they inspired us visually. We brainstormed and came up with a few keywords and put these words into context for the storyline and the aesthetics settings.





Particle System


We developed a particle system to faithfully represent our aesthetic ideas. Point clouds were utilized as the key component of the visuals, simulating smoke, wind, and fractals to create a dynamic, psychedelic ambiance. With the use of Kinect v2, we are able to retrieve the point cloud information from performers in real time, thereby simultaneously layering the performer's action on top of the pre-made particle landscape.






Photogrammetry


The storyline of "Strange Species" begins in a wasteland, and the traces of human existence are revealed one step at a time. We utilized aerial survey techniques to record landscapes in Taiwan, even going as far out as Penghu Island. We documented various forests, valleys, and abandoned buildings, and converted them into 3D landscapes.








Sound Visualization


Sound is the key ingredient in concerts. In order to better relate the images to the sound, we entered the data from the drums, vocals, and other instruments as three different sets of parameters to correspondingly alter the motion of the particles.


Fractals


Fractals are replications of patterns that look exactly the same at every scale; its idea is simple yet itself is by nature complicated. To truthfully represent the nostalgic ambiance of  "Film", we zoomed in and out to create a time-travel feel and used photos Chua's from daily life to form fractals that were then interspersed into the 3D landscapes and the main visuals.




ECODOT LED Display


With "Blank Space" (空白格), we projected 3D images of the live performance onto a 3x3m and 10m height LED cubic column.
