Future of media arts

Yesterday's post was very text heavy. Here is a super interesting video to give you a break.

Golan Levin's AMA Video Uses Experimental 3D Cinema from FITC on Vimeo.

This is a really interesting interview, done all online. Questions were asked by the reddit community and then Levin responded in a video. They video was filmed with a Kinect sensor and a DSLR. The DSLR provided the colour while the Kinect provided the 3D shape. Then the filmmakers used custom openFrameworks software that aligns and combines color video and depth data into a dynamic sculptural relief. From this they could then move a virtual camera around 3D space.

Anyway, apart from the technical side of the video, a really interesting look at art + technology right now and the future.
