The UAE commissioned Tellart to reimagine the experience design of its pavilion for COP28. Tellart spearheaded the conceptual development, focusing on narrating the UAE's commitment to sustainability.

The project spanned a year, marked by numerous iterations, prototyping, and concept development. I was part of the team from the early stages, contributing to the conception and development of several interactive ideas. Among 15 interactive projects, I led the development of two notable ones: "Dinner in 2050" and "Cross Walks."

Dinner In 2050

Lead Creative Technology


"Dinner in 2050" is an AI-powered game by Tellart, transforming how we view food in relation to climate action. This immersive installation encourages sustainable eating through a playful experience. Guests use a microphone to share their favorite meal, and Tellart's AI then revises it using ingredients with lower carbon footprints, like substituting lamb with grasshoppers. The experience highlights the environmental impact of food choices, focusing on water and energy use, carbon emissions, and nutrition.

However, implementing this idea was complex. We conducted extensive research on the potential impact of climate change on food, which guided our instructions to the LLM and Generative AI. The setup included three servers, Kinect, projection mapping, audio systems, and presence detection technology.


Our Resilience


"Our Resilience" is an audiovisual projection mapping project, designed to subtly evoke the presence of animals in desert environments, specifically within the UAE. As guests walk by, the tracks of camels, beetles, spiny-tailed lizards, oryx, and snakes are projected onto the dunes, playfully integrating the variety of animals inhabiting these landscapes. This random display of animal tracks, each distinct and unique in appearance, creates an immersive experience where visitors feel as though they are 'walking' alongside these creatures.


We created over 25 unique footprint animations using TouchDesigner and tracked their movement, playing synchronized audio with a custom Max application. This project required careful coordination and the use of advanced technology to overcome its technical and logistical challenges.
