LACMA + SNAP
The River Once Ran 2022, a Snap AR Lens developed for LACMA x Judy Baca to augment the Great Wall of Los Angeles Mural. The Lens enhances the mural’s story and brings back the natural river habitat in the LA River canal. The project included modeling, rigging, and animating low poly 2D/3D assets for an interactive environment.
In The River Once Ran, we see a recovery of the river, a restoration of the land, a flurry of stork’s bill seeds (interactive), a howling coyote, hummingbirds, and butterflies. We hear the howl of the coyote and the voices of the mural makers involved in the creation of The Great Wall. Time is compressed to allow the multiple histories of the site visible at once - illustrating a healing of the river and a recovery of disappeared histories.
The River Once Ran may be experienced at The Great Wall of Los Angeles or from anywhere by downloading Snapchat and scanning the code below.
