virtual garden

located in the royal docks of london, the project reuses the water of the disused dock and reinvents the lost spectacle of the pleasure garden. with one of its past exhibits being a japanese garden, the cherry blossom tree is chosen as a subject. utilising the water from the dock, mechanical devices and digital technology along the banks project holographic cherry blossoms onto mist. each cherry blossom has a life cycle of 6 hours. taking a different forms when viewed at different points, the holographic trees convey mysterical qualities, especially when the projection magically disappear and reappear. movement of the lights and counterweight mechanisms are precisely calibrated to the millimetre to create the final subtle choreography. holographic tree grows and undergo seasonal changes in a choreography on a grand scale transforming the disused dock into a live event spectacle.
