MAN A VR
2015 – Room scale Virtual Reality experience, mobile app, custom virtual reality viewer
Examining relationships between figure & landscape, Gibson/Martelli collaborate to discover new performance spaces – the MAN A project has formed a ‘laboratory’ where we have been experimenting with a number of different ideas around this concept together with motion capture, large format printing, augmented reality and for this piece VR.
MAN A VR aims to push the viewer into the ‘computer space’ of our performers, surrounding the viewer with choreographed dancers. A cocktail of camouflage — hiding, revealing, information bearing, noticeable, unnoticeable, marked, unmarked, appearing, disappearing. More info about MAN A here.
Recently MAN A VR was exhibited at FILE Electronic Language International Festival in Sao Paulo.
