To celebrate the opening of San Francisco’s iconic Exploratorium science museum in a new waterfront location, local studio Obscura Digital created a site-specific digital projection dubbed “Emergence.” Instead of using computer graphics, the team at Obscura built scale models of the building’s façade and conducted science experiments: they grew plants and crystals, collected microscopic protozoa and toyed with liquids and gases, all within the specific contours of the building itself. When projected at full size, the images respond to the museum’s architecture, bending and turning around windows, doors and walls.
