A great interpretation of connecting real and virtual entities is the Gorillaz band. They are a virtual presence and front for the singer and musicians.
What I like is not just the general aesthetic, But the use of realistic textures and follicles, and how that is coupled with these very characteristic versions of people. It provides a very appealing look.
Interactive fluid sculpture. done with processing.
This is a brilliant use of AR and 3d printing, I never thought of placing the maker in the centre of the print and then making the print the centre piece. A really clever idea. I feel this is probably beyond my skill set for the time being. I need to become more aquatinted with processing.
I saw this video, and it got me thinking about using screens to replace real world objects or body parts. Might be something worth looking into.
I found these photos from a Russian photographer called Sergey Larenkov. He photoshops the old with the new, more specifically he looked at world war 2 photos and matched up the locations with todays photos to see how the place has changed. I think I could maybe do something similar in Cardiff with this Facebook page which has been collecting old photos of Cardiff. You could hold up you phone and get a half image of old Cardiff and super impose it over the current day Cardiff on your phone… easier said than done I’m sure.
More recent photos of a similiar style, ones taken in Ukraine.
