This weeks lecture was captivating to say the least, with the concept of ‘physical to digital’ then ‘digital to physical’ leaving endless room for interpretation. Delving into the possibilities, I considered the digital resurrection of past music artists such as Tupac and Michael Jackson, through the use of a 3D hologram projection.
Screening a physically identical version of a now deceased human being through digital processes is a wonderful example of what can be experienced from material-digital transformations.
“The storyteller takes what he tells from experience; his own or others, and makes it the experience of those hearing the tale.”
Whilst some like me think this concept is really, really cool. Like anything, it does have it’s critics!
