The Dial is an interactive narrative combining augmented reality and projection mapping. A mystery about a formerly wealthy American family begins with a late-night car crash and unfolds from shifting perspectives. You control time with your body in this rich visual tale, unraveling what happened that fateful night. Move clockwise and time passes normally. Move counterclockwise and time rewinds.
NightLight developed original techniques for synchronizing projected and AR content, in addition to tracking viewer position.
