HERO HEROINE

Media performance

GRINDER-MAN [Japan]

Outline

An experiential work shown at the Tsukuba Media Art Festival 2018 enabling participation in stylized special effects and video animations. Poses made by participants filmed in front of a chroma key screen are analyzed and synthesized to cast them as the hero/heroine in animations transcending reality. A Twitter feed then chronicles the defeat of (and by) fellow participants through immediate posting of the videos.
