for whom: Marco Tempest
what: in this performance Marco Tempest drives his audience into a journey through time and the calendar, exploring different storytelling approaches to augmented and mixed reality in the meantime.
The software setup we created makes use of a wide range of tracking techniques and visual effects, in order to create a rich and natural interaction framework. During the show Marco uses natural gestures to manipulate digital objects, wears digital masks, moves in a depth-segmented 3D space and is even able to highlight topic moments using a custom designed system of physical, real world lights interacting with the digital world.
In the video below Marco opens the celebration of the first 30 years of the MIT Media Lab performing Magic Calendar.
