In museums and exhibitions forget about touching a painting, sometimes you are not even allowed to go near any. However Scott Garner’s ‘Still Life’ begs you to have some fun by not only touching but even even tilting the apparently innocent painting.
Rotate the frame and you get the shock of your life to witness the elements in the painting simply tumble over as if they were real. The clever assembly which makes this interactive painting work to a tee actually involves a flat screen TV bounded by a frame that works in conjunction with a camera and a game developing program Unity 3D.
When a rotation is recognized by the spatial sensor [fixed to the screens back], it activates a software to communicate with the make-belief scenario created by Unity 3D. The outcome is an interactive painting which responds likewise to the movements being made. Check that out for yourself in the video below.
