Mosster loves creating for everyone, but ultimately we love to create experiences that makes you feel like a kid again. Our childhood memories were special, fun, joyful and worry free! It's always nice to be a kid again.
So, when Eltham Primary School and Hawthorn West Primary School invited Mosster to participate in a collaborative art project with their students, we jumped at the chance of going back to school!
Hawthorn West Primary School wanted to host their own mini version of White Night at their school. So, we created an art projection based project that all students from prep-Year 6 got to participate in.
Students designed and created their own projection artwork as part of Mini White Night festival. On the night, all student’s work were projected onto the school’s front facade in a slideshow format. In addition, we also set up a digital Augmented Reality table so kids can use physical cubes with augmented reality to create digital artwork.
As part of Art Week, Eltham Primary School invited Mosster to collaborate with their children on-site so they have hands on experience to see how digital art is developed. Mosster resided at the school for three days to set up a sensor based projection art installation. Children and teachers were invited to drop in as part of to ask questions and share their own ideas for the project.
We were really happy to share our working process with the children as we feel that learning comes naturally when experiencing in real life.
At the end of each day, Mosster would share the development of the installation so parents and children can see the progression of our work. The final installation was a magical character that appears from within a light forest when it senses kids around.
