MAN A uses augmented reality and computer vision to re-imagine ‘dazzle’ camouflage as tribal markings for invisible performers, hidden in special prints activated by the App.
MAN A app uses the device camera, whilst the app is enabled, to recognise images through the camera and show on-screen animations on top of the real world – this is known as ‘augmented reality’.
More about the app www.gibsonmartelli.com/portfolio/man-a-app/
British electronic arts duo Gibson / Martelli make live simulations using performance capture, computer generated models and an array of technologies including Virtual Reality. Artworks of infinite duration are built within game engines where surround sound heightens the sense of immersion. They playfully address the position of the self in relation to technology, examining ideas of player, performer and visitor -intertwining familiar tropes of video games and art traditions of figure & landscape. For the purposes of European data protection law Gibson/Martelli operate a registered UK charity, igloo artists ltd. (no.1124325)
