Almost Disney is an interactive art installation that was funded by the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and installed in conjunction with the TEDxYouth@Lincoln conference. It was constructed from 270 square gold mylar balloons that were filled with helium and then constrained to waist height. Participants immersed themselves in the balloons in order to move beyond the installation and explore the rest of the conference. Projection mapping and motion-triggered audio were incorporated into the installation to enhance the overall immersion.
