Lumarca is a truly volumetric display which allows viewers to see three dimensional images and motion. The system requires only a computer, a projector, and common materials found at most hardware stores. This provides an affordable platform for artists to design compelling content that conveys information, narrative, and aesthetic information in a new way.
Lumarca is a collaboration between Albert Hwang and Matt Parker. This Processing Library helps to make content for lumarca, as well as aid in the calibration process.
