Midnight City-0

Midnight City

Midnight City is a browser-based artwork featured in Melbourne Fringe Festival’s’Digital Fringe’ 2020 program.

The work combines crowd-sourced snapshots of viewers’ strolls through their home cities and neighbourhoods, deconstructed and knitted back together to form an endless, ever changing streetscape. Viewers are invited to submit videos of their own neighbourhoods to build out this collective vision of home and place.
 
The piece is generative, randomly spawning scenes and particles within the user’s browser and able to be explored via the mouse. It is built using Unity Engine in addition to photogrammetry tools, Mapbox for custom map display and is delivered in browser via Unity’s webGL wrapper.
