INTERNATIONAL TRICKFILM FESTIVAL 22 – 27 April, 2014 Stuttgart, Germany And FMX Conference on Animation, Effects, Games, and Technology 22 – 25 April, 2014 Stuttgart, Germany

 

They were very busy but they took time out to sit down with me and tell me about The Hollow Land Experience.  The talented couple have created an audience inter-active installation to “explore the possibilities and expel the boundaries between theatre and animation, fiction and realism, transforming a screen based experience into a physical one”.  Participants are given masks and costumes representing the two characters in the film as they enter the “animated rooms” which are created by multi-angled projections which change rapidly as the masked participants explore them.  The blind “explorers” do not realize that there is one actor among them who leads them through the experience and hands them props such as toilet plungers to put on their heads.  There is also an audience watching all of the activity much like old time residents of a city would watch newcomers. The installation was conceived at the Open Workshop in Viborg where they are both artists-in-residence.  They said that it is expensive to install but they hope to be able to present it at animation festivals and in museums.  You can see a small excerpt about the project on their website: http://Hollowlandfilm.wordpress.com
