for a bat’s journey in the city
The project focuses on creating a series of animations with a narrative of a bat’s journey through Hong Kong. The challenge is to visualize their experience, which is based on echolocation, a sensory process differing significantly from human vision. The method involves using Blender’s geometry node and visual scripting to accurately represent the bat’s perception of the city, considering the slower speed of sound and the bat’s rapid movement. This approach aims to shed light on how these animals perceive and navigate the urban landscape.
