Workshop with the camera 360°  [EN]

Exmeriment with the 360° camera and make your own 3D goggle to watch VR films! Try out all your creative ideas for a movie scenario and find out what is possible to realize with the camera that records everything what is around you at one time. How do you edit such material on the computer? How to see your film on a smartphone or online?

Augmented Reality exhibition

Augmented Reality exhibition will take place in the courtyard of STUK between 1 and 8 december 2018. This expo is paired with an android & iOS app, KFL AR exhibition, to allow each artwork to come to life with animation and – in future – also with sound.  The project has been created in collaboration between polish graphic artist and belgian animators, sound designers and new media designers.

paired with an app graphical artworks come to life with animation (and sometimes with sound)

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Augmented Reality (AR) is the process of overlaying digital information over our physical reality. For our this exhibition, we invited cutting edge graphical artists, animators, sound & new media designers from Poland and Belgium to use the KFL AR platform to overlay their printed artworks with animation (and sound). KFl AR Exhibition uses image recognition and animation mapping technology to seamlessly map AR animations to the printed poster design. The KFL AR app will be released for FREE at the Kort Film Festival 2018.

THE FUTURE

The purpose of this exhibition is to showcase the potential of Augmented Reality technology by allowing a diverse selection of artists to explore it’s aesthetic and narrative possibilities.  It will also serve as a historical document as we step into this new era of art and technology.  This is the first belgian AR exhibition in this emerging field.  At this moment in time Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Apple are investing hundreds of millions of dollars in to new AR technologies that will ensure it becomes a standard in our everyday lives.  We want our expo to serve as a catalyst for establishing a high standard of AR art as well as the power of new media within the co-creation between artists from different cultures, who are synced in their work thanks to the new technologies.

Cinematic VR experience

“Warsaw Rising” is the first feature film in Poland executed in the virtual reality (VR) technology. It tells a story based on the fate of one of Warsaw insurgents, Capt. Władysław Sieroszewski alias “Sabała”, who received a note with a prayer from his daughter when he was leaving to fight in the Uprising in August 1944. At the time, he did not know yet that the note would influence his further fate. The theme of the film is based on real events that still exist today in the memory and hearts of all Poles – in Poland and abroad. It is also a film that in a very attractive and innovative way shows the culture, valor and temperament of Poles, all those who would like to learn more about Poles and Polish history.
Numerous films have already been made about the Warsaw Uprising, yet nobody has ever used the virtual reality technology to talk about those events.
As the director, Tomasz Dobosz, says, we no longer have to imagine what we would have done if we had lived in those times. We feel our physical presence in that time and place, which – given the right sensitivity – enables us to feel what choices we might have made. Watching a scene of guerrilla fighting, do we feel like hiding or joining the battle? Seeing Warsaw destroyed by the war, do we feel sadness or anger? Thanks to the fact that VR can deceive the human brain in terms of experiencing presence in the given place, we can come a little closer to answering these questions.
The VR technology makes it possible to experience the virtual space “here and now”.
A combination of stereoscopy, an imaging technique creating or enhancing the illusion of depth and distance for binocular vision, and ambisonic sound lets the viewers experience immersion – the impression of becoming submerged in the image. Thanks to special goggles, virtual reality deceives human senses, enabling viewers to move into a different space, to enter a role with their entire self.
