Inspired by Japan’s national flower and the famous cherry blossom trees located at the University of Washington’s Liberal Arts Quadrangle, Influorecense explores the relationship between humans and nature through an interactive art installation that breaks boundaries set in the natural world.

With the help of Blender and Unity 3D, I was able to create our cherry blossom tree, filled with glowing flowers. The tree is made up of about 90 flowers, each with 10 individual stems in the center of the flower. Our team created an interactive, whimsical world inside of a portal. Originally, our portal was going to be in augmented reality, allowing users to be fully immersed in glowing petals and our stunning tree as part of a physical art exhibition.
The glowing pink flowers and low-poly art style gives our experience a whimsical feel. We did not intend to replicate or replace the natural world, but give user's a new way to experience it..
