A research project on the virtualisation of the live performer

The Final Weeks

Last week, we have been working in the workshop of de Filmfabriek, in Bierbeek, Belgium.
www.filmfabriek.org

Everybody concentrated on a different aspect of the performance: creating new movement material, find the right costumes, editing a final text, working with the 3D scans and importing them into Isadora… Most of the time, Maarten has been filming in the big aquarium of de Filmfabriek (at least, one of them), a contraption with nicely heated and conditioned water.
The idea is to confront real floating people with virtual, scanned people.

As the set design is now, we'll need 15 projectors: 12 for a full panorama in the Gasometer, 2 projectors in the iceberg and a big one to project on the ceiling of the gasometer, with the aid of a manipulates mirror.

Well, that's the plan for now, at least…

This week, we get to enter the gasometer and confront our dreams with reality.
I'm sure it will give quite a BANG :-))))
