Postcards from Disneyland (Part 5 of 5)

In order to create the projections in the Disneyland park for this project, we first had to create a series of images in studio of our characters. We made two types of images — heads and full bodies. These are the bodies. The girl bodies are reminiscent of the various animatronics and dolls on rides such as Snow White’s Scary Adventures and It’s a Small World. Mickey takes his inspiration from the concept of “Hidden Mickeys” around the park. Much like a hidden Mickey, when we projected our images into the landscape of Disneyland, almost nobody saw them. They hid in plain sight.
