Coastal Terrarium is a 3-screen panoramic video installation illustrating a cross section of the north pacific coast waters where the artist grew up. The work combines photo-collage, live-action video, 3D modelling using photogrammetry, and stop-motion animation sea creatures composited in After Effects.
This new work is a continuation of the series of Video Terrariums, a collection of panoramic video landscapes using multiple screens and integrating various animation/compositing techniques to reference scenic dioramas as one might find in a natural history museum illustrating a variety of habitats.
