Projected Desert was created by the Meow Wolf Team and developed in collaboration with Cocolab. The Projected Desert combines artworks from Alex and Allyson Grey, Luke Brown, Tetramode, Android Jones, and original music from Brian Eno into an immersive installation.
Meow Wolf’s Corvas Brinkerhof envisaged a breathtaking installation in which the audience travels through a desert in an altered state. The Projected Desert is a 36-foot-tall, 4,000sq ft rock canyon upon which every surface is projection-mapped with mesmerizing artworks. Cocolab began by interweaving original paintings, videos, photographs and illustrations from contributing artists into a detailed composition. They chose Notch as their render engine and content creation tool for creating visual effects and particle animations. Using the Notch LC facilitated a fast production process and rendered millions of pixels at an extraordinary scale. The Las Vegas-based immersive experience is an unprecedented collaboration of visionary artists and is now open to members of the public who wish to alter their state of consciousness.
