Battersea Arts Centre – Fire Exit animation

Working with Will Adamsdale (director), Chris Branch (sound) and Michele Panagrossi (maker).

This animation was the response to a brief called ‘creativity’ from a commission by BAC as part of their Heritage Lottery funded installations.

The end result was an interactive display that at first glance looks just like any other fire escape sign, except that once you press the buttton to activate it, it comes alive.

The animation appears to interact with the space including pulling up a real world curtain during the show annd activating physical lights.

I acheived the animation through a crude motion capture technique including pingpong balls and AfterEffects.
