LightAnimal is a kind of projection mapping we make. We can show any creatures as lifesize, even big whales!
We exhibited the lifesize humpback whales in Yokohama redbrick warehouse in Japan spring 2013. The whales swam autonomously and sometimes nursed. Moreover, the whale moves interactively. Many people played with it.
LightAnimal has important and broad possibilities.We can exhibit any creatures in not only aquarium but also anywhere. Inland people will be able to know whale size. Hospitalized patients will be able to play with dolphins. We will be able to change night town walls to aquarium tanks. And LightAnimal never hurts creatures for own exhibitions.
I have been working as a marinelife illustrator for over 17 years. I am always looking for the way that people take a liking to creatures. I hope LightAnimal is used for environmental education and animal conservation.
