Aaliyah loves to dance, but has no band members, can you help her find some?

Aaliyah the elephant is an augmented reality game where players can conduct their own orchestra by bringing new musicians into Aaliyah’s world using AR tags. Story books for very young children usually follow a simple theme and run through different instances of the same scene, such as The very Hungry Caterpillar who eats his way through numerous different things during his adventure.

We followed a similar narrative, where Aaliyah would find different musicians and change her dance accordingly. We wanted to give the participants the scope for more creative self expression, by making a non linear storyline.

A project in collaboration with John Bertolaso. During the project the work was an even split, I focused on the Interactions between AR tags and the animals.
