Alohomora: Unlock the magic | Lighting & Decor Designer
Alohomora was a Harry Potter inspired immersive event with games, quests, and an original narrative, put on by the USC Special Events Committee. It took place in the Ronald Tutor Ballroom, and had over 500 attendees. In the story of the event, three of the Wizarding Schools came together for a special evening of magic, festivities, and challenges, but beneath the celebrative veneer was a plan to actively recruit students to fight against a growing local band of death eaters.
zen room | conceptual project
The zen room is an auditory experience that uses foley in every element of the room to create a calming atmosphere. The auditory effects are combined with visual design, including warm earth tone pallet, natural textures and materials, a large window for natural lighting, and organic shapes to create a fully immersive experience.
Floor planks- holes in the floor around the perimeter of the room would be covered by metal planks that can be played like a xylophone
Ribbed wooden wall- running your fingers across the wall creates a repetitive thumping, and this shape reinforces the acoustics and bounces the sound all over the room
Lamp Shade- the cone can be tapped to create a soothing sound, the different rings create different pitches
Window Curtain- wood and plastic scales embedded in the fabric of the curtain rattle every time the curtain flutters
Swing Chair- in between the wooden supports of the swing are taut nylon strings that can be strummed, each string plays a different pitch depending on the length
Rocking Chair- rain sticks are incorporated into the design of the legs of the rocking chair, so that as you rock you are calmed by the tapping of rain
Side Table- the body of it made of a nice hollow wood, and it is topped like a tambourine with a head for drumming and metal jingles that rattle whenever something is placed on the table
