‘Virtual Actors’ in Animations Inspired by Chinese Costumes & Dance
These animations by Tobias Gremmler are absolutely gorgeous – check out the video below to see seven of them in action!
Created for a theatre production that fuses Chinese Opera with New Media, the virtual actors are inspired by shapes, colors and motions of traditional Chinese costumes and dance. The project made me think of how costumes and fashion could reshape a human body.
