The Projection Terrain is an installation project collaborated between Axi:Ome and the artist Patricia Olynyk for the UCLA, CNSI Gallery. The Projection Terrain is an optical illusion projection surface that provokes depth and motion perception through its various hypsometric tints and relief shading. The surface terrain and its peaks were developed through geo-morphometry process that calculates the complex curvatures and its possible shadow traces as a new medium for digital projections. The Projection Terrain allows the optical illusions of physiological perception to effects the eyes and the brain for excessive stimulation of darkness and lightness.
