The Edge: After Hours Special Event
Thursday 05 Dec 2019 · The Edge · Free · 5-8pm
This December The Edge is going digital. On Thursday 05 December, immerse yourself in an evening of projection, take a tour of the physical and virtual realms of the exhibition and enjoy digital art workshops. Guests will have a chance to experience augmented reality, using a HoloLens headset to find virtual pigs, captured by CAMERA, walking around in The Edge.
After Hours are special events which combine a unique mix of music, activities and arts experiences. This special event is the perfect way to enjoy a slice of culture and after-work drinks with friends and colleagues.
How can you make a pig act? You can’t tell a pig to do that. What if you could record a pig moving in every possible direction, then stitch those movements together so they match an actor’s movements? So, CAMERA went to a farm and motion captured the lovely Molly.
