On April 30th, 2019, Reed Parlier and Riley Howell lost their lives and four students were wounded at UNC Charlotte. Classmates, faculty, staff, families, friends, and an entire community were forever changed. In the wake of this tragedy, the campus community and the City of Charlotte are united with the strength, resilience, and hope illuminated by this memorial.
Remembrance is an act, a ritual, and an engagement with the past. Grounded by themes of illumination and healing, the Constellation Garden Remembrance Memorial aims to make remembrance visible and be held in the light. The memorial strengthens the community through human connection, acknowledges the magnitude of loss, and embraces an optimistic and hopeful future.
This project makes extensive use of Aniray for animation, sequencing, sampling, and geometry manipulation. My contribution to the project is the design and implementation of all software, electronic, interactive, and animated systems.
This project was a collaboration between Hypersonic, Ten X Ten Landscape Architecture, and Susan Hatchell Landscape Architecture, PLLC. The project was commissioned by UNC Charlotte.
