Our Big Pig is moving into The Edge



The Fantastical Multimedia Pop-Up Project is coming to The Edge, and CAMERA is delighted to offer you an exciting new experience as part of this free “gallery take-over of virtual reality, interactive games, exhibits and art works at the intersection of arts, digital and science.” The Pop-Up Project will run from 20th July to 24th August.

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.

 

 

 

We don’t want to give away too much about what we created with Molly,  so make sure you go along to The Edge to experience it for yourself.

This project was originally funded by EPSRC and Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnership.
