Concept

Users equipped with tablets see the digital doubles of dancers on a human scale. Captured in volumetric video they are visible on three flat surfaces they will delimit on the ground. Each surface contains an episode of 1.5 to 2 minutes, and all three episodes can be played in the order of the viewer’s choice.
The project puts the viewers at the very source of the images: the triggering of the sequences and the speed of reading depend on their movements in space. They can pause the course of each episode if they wish or stop any episode to pay the greatest attention to the volumes of the bodies around which they can move.
Ground cues indicate the direction to follow to play the film and access the next episode.

Plateform

First BIFACE will be show case in the form of an augmented reality artistic journey as part of visual art, digital art and dance exhibitions program.
In a second time, the web platform will also be a way to distribute the application and the new episodes in augmented reality.
Anyone with the latest generation’s tablet will also be able to get them on XR platforms such as VRrOOm. The episodes will be downloadable on a website and users will also be able to share their experience around the world.
