Argus Project Interactive 3D Model

T

he Argus Project is a trans-media project that directly intersects the public debate over police accountability. The project features a suit of tactical counter-surveillance armor embedded with body cameras and video projections featuring former officers, activists, and family members directly impacted by police violence. I built the interactive 3D model for the touch interface for the installation at Tribeca Storyscapes during the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

I built the interactive 3D model in Javascript using the library Three.js. Clicking the “eyes” on the model activates different cameras on the Argus suit at the installation. The interface is built in the browser so that the Argus suit can eventually be operated over the internet by a remote audience.
