Winner Genius Loci Weimar Competition '14
Anna Amalia Bibliothek - Weimar (DE)
Traditional 2d animation & stop motion techniques are here merged with interactive and generative coding: a tale of physicality in code to create a unique immersive experience.
This hybrid timing is the main subject of our work: a frame-by-frame motion, an innovative craft board augmenting the role of traditional techniques applied to the digital approach towards an original development of a live cinematic narrative.
Techniques, craft and materials usually involved in tra-digital stop motion, are here applied to contemporary reprojection methods: handcrafted abilities work as background for Computational art.
We are currently developing the sonic concept of “shared perception” (Chion 1990) into the imaged resolution of a “non place” (Marc Augé 1995): by overlapping individual visualisation on a common (parallax) virtual (ghost) surface (liminal) we are creating a “suspended” playground.
We strongly acknowledge video mapping as an expanding reprojection of cinematic depiction. To paid reverence to the Genius Loci’s essence in this work we also implemented anaglyph projection techniques.
