Simona Bunardzhieva (simoneone) is a Graphic Artist, Illustrator, & Maker. She used Lightform to break her designs out of her sketch book and create an immersive AR photo booth à la 29 Rooms.
Simona began by sketching each element of the underwater world.
The sketches were then vectorized and printed at human scale.
The prints were glued onto cardboard and the cardboard was laser cut. Cardboard stands hold the cut-outs upright.
To create the photo booth, we rented an Epson G7500U, which was ceiling-mounted in front of the scene. We used the Epson G7500U for this installation, which is an installation grade 6500 lumen projector. However, if the scene was a bit smaller or you are constrained by budget, the Epson HC1450 – a 4200 lumen projector – would also do just fine. The projectors can be mounted to the ceiling using this mount, ceiling plate, and extension pole. Or they could be mounted to truss.
Once the projectors were set up, Lightform scanned the scene and Simona created content using Lightform Creator’s instant effects and stock videos.
