The group RunJumpDev.org runs an annual interactive art exhibit, and this was the year of "The Claw." The group got a hold of several old claw machines that we were allowed to repurpose.
For Astray in the Woods I decided that I wanted to experiment further with the Pepper's Ghost effect, and see how layering would work. I wanted to create a more subtle piece that allowed the player to discover small things like animated lights and branches moving under their cursor.
I used previously existing work from my image series Myths at McConnel Springs. I liked the process, and intend to create more altered pieces like this in the future
This was an experiment that I would like to continue working on, but because it was in a claw machine I couldn't fit in my door, I will have to find a new way to display pieces like this.
