Motion Capture Avatars 01 / 02 / 03

Project Description
Avatars 01/02/03 were part of one of 4 installations built by Unit Lab for The Edge Arts Bath's Summer show.
Each installations was designed to bring a new technology to life; AI, 3d printing, VR and Motion Capture.

One of the problems with creating models for motioncapture is that the geometry needs to be defromed properly by the movement of the motion capture performer. This can be time consuming to setup and test, and as the project timline was very short we new there would littl time for this. To remove as much set-up time as possible the skeleton structure was built from simple primitve objects.
We then applied this logioc to the the rest of the body, as if the avatars had put themselves togther - a bit like a Hermit crab.
Finally, in reference to the use of motion capture the avatars were finished with masks to cover their faces.
