A Southern Dark Ride

In June of 2016, artist Joel Zika built an animated installation in a historic ghost train in Oxford Alabama. Using projection mapping designed specifically for this unusual space. Original props were removed and the darkened tunnels were used to build a new immersive space.

Whilst developing the work the entire ride experience was captured using ultra low light cameras for a full 360 immersive experience. The result is a 2 minute ride experience into the artwork and this hybrid multimedia space.

The work is currently looking for licensing and exhibition opportunities for 2016/17, it is 4k with a 4 channel surround soundtrack.  Sound Design by Patrick McMahon and Shane Jarvie-Kohn, Score by Darrin Verhagen, Production design by Will Heathcote.   Original Ride designed by Bill Tracy, Val Valentine and Jeremy Cruse.
