EXPERIENCE DESIGN WORK

 

KOMODO EXPEDITION

June 2022

I have had the chance to work with Muhammad Ihsan Akbar Satrio on our ride concept entry for the Themed Attraction Student Showcase 2022. My contributions to the project include 3D Modeling a trackless ride vehicle, a fictional species of Komodo Dragon, a set of AR Glasses and designing a ride scene.

Komodo Expedition is a dark ride where volunteers (guests) take pictures of Komodo Dragons in order to contribute to a research conducted by Professor Benjamin after hearing rumors of a rare species roaming around the tropical forests of Rinca Island.

MADAME LEOTA VR

March 2022

Madame Leota VR is a VR 360° recreation of the Scéance Circle scene from The Haunted Mansion that can be found in Disney Parks. I recreated the scene in VR for fun + as something that I can go back to when I don't get to ride The Haunted Mansion as often.

I modeled everything using Blender 3D and composed the render and sounds in Adobe Premiere Pro. View it in VR or 360° here.

 
 

UNI·QUE

June 2021

Uni·Que is an immersive interactive experience inspired by my personal experience of looking for belongings after misplacing them around my home. For this experience, I wanted to focus on immersion by allowing the player to interact with the world and the character through unconventional means such as scanning QR codes and data obtained from them. 

The player utilizes the webcam to scan items received from QR codes in order to progress the experience. Some QR codes provide clues to guide the player to the next quest.

This project was made for my DMA senior capstone project in interactivity and games with guidance from

Chandler McWilliams and Zhengyang Huang.

 
 

C̶O̶M̶P̶O̶S̶ ̶M̶E̶N̶T̶I̶S̶

Fall 2020

Video documentation of my final project for DESMA 171 (Topics in Machine Learning). Project includes images, words and sound generated using machine learning. This project illustrates the effects of being cooped up for too long. Music starts to sound jumbled up (Audio Style Transfer), staring at the screen too long causes hallucination/afterimages (StyleGan2), and posters become a bit dark (RunwayML text generation). The only way to get away is to look/go outside.


This project is based on my personal experience as a designer, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Instructed by Parag K Mital and Zhengyang Huang.

 
 

HOMECOMING

Spring 2020

For my final worldbuilding class project, I wanted to depict the neighborhood I live in Jakarta. The player is able to explore the streets and alleyways, interact with NPCs, and walk into houses. 3D Models modeled in Blender, game programmed in Unity.

Instructed by Eddo Stern.

 
 

DIGITAL OCEAN

Spring 2019

An interactive art piece that allows multiple users to connect and interact with each other in a vast ocean. Users take the form of an 'Ocean Spirit' as they interact with fish to change their swimming direction, and move graciously across the calming space.

Other users who are currently connected are represented as green Ocean Spirits. Coded with p5.js, node.js, and socket.io.

You can try it for yourself by clicking here.

Final project for my interactivity class instructed by Lauren McCarthy.

 
 

ELEVATOR TO THE MOON

Winter 2019

Final project for my Motion class. The final product tells us a story of the journey of a space elevator from the Earth to the Moon. Everything is modeled using Blender. Composition is edited in Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere pro. The final output is projected on to three walls using three projectors.


Instructed by Refik Anadol & Hirad Sab.

 
 

NVCO FASHION SHOW '16

Spring 2016

Nusantara Virtual Company (NVCo), is a Virtual Enterprises company that specializes in shoes. During my time in the company, we added clothing.

The NVCO Fashion Show was a marketing tool in order to reach out to more customers. I was the lead designer for the event. I created decorative assets, and a "360 degree" video, which was actually four videos playing at the same time and created an illusion that things were happening around the spectator. I also created a template for the photo booth that was present during the event.
