Oups! - Marcio Ambrosio
Interactive video installation
Capturing and tracking camera, animated image integration and projection
Created in 2007
Oups! was born from the wish to mix new technologies and classic animation in a playful and artistic way.
Each animated sequence has a script and the visitor interacts and transforms himself into an actor of this story.
When the visitor enters in a defined space, a camera records his image and projects it on a screen in front (like a mirror) in real size and time. The visitor sees himself integrated to an animation setting that follow his movements. He founds himself immersed in a creative universe of images and sounds.
The animation sequences that feed this universe are stored in a video library, new animations may be added to enrich the project. Oups! universe is playful and naive, accessible to all publics and ages.
