ZAZA'S SKY FOREST
Interaction and Experience Design
"Let's go for a dream adventure..."
Have you ever thought about...
What is dream？
Do you like dreaming？
What happened during your dream？
Cooperated with Hanwen Zhang. I mainly took charge of the design, 3d modelling，fabrication，interaction and illustration..

Concept design: Sketching ideas and the forms of design. Providing the elementary ideas of the interaction.
First prototyping &Brainstorming: Inviting students, professors and friends to explore the space that we created.
Development & Design: Designing the character and the interaction.
Deciding the tech: Testing different projectors and makes everything sensors works in the computer.
Playtesting: Inviting students, professors and friends to test again and do some adjustion of the design.
Modeling and Animated: Creating 3D assets and pieces of animations for our design.
Final Fabrication/ Digital Works
Our project is inspired by “DREAM” which is difficult to be described and captured. However, It is wonderful and attract people to touch. Therefore, we hope to build a bridge to connect the dream and the real world.
Our character is named ZAZA and the “sky forest”, which is a floating forest is the dream world of ZAZA. We hope to evoke the audiences’ memories of dreams by interacting with the dream of ZAZA. Since the changes of physical world could influence the dream, we hope to develop more about this property. We built the ZAZA’s Bedroom, the audience could interact with the components in the room, such as rotating the bed, pushing the chair, changing the lightings. At the same time, it will cause the changes of sounds, light, temperature, finally the magic happened in this "forest".
CHARACTER DESIGN& INTERACTION DESIGN
Both of us had a really intense ideas of making the unique character. We named it ZAZA since the last name of both of us is "Zhang". ZAZA is the child who represents the sense of pure and who always wears a pink pajamas.
This is the diagram of interaction.
