Chris O’Shea's Little Magic Stories
The more artists explore new frontiers in interactive art, the more I often mind myself wondering where exactly to draw the line between what is animation and what is puppetry. A good example of this is the augmented shadow puppetry that I recently wrote about over at PuppetVision, which is sort of shadow puppetry, but also sort of not.
Another good example is this performance system created by Chris O’Shea called Little Magic Stories. It was made using the X-Box Kinect (see previous post) and the old Pepper's Ghost Vaudeville trick.
So is this animation? Digital puppetry? Or something else entirely?
