The traditional painting, with its material, style, skill and technique of the
artist, is an irreversible reality. However, the unique story, the message that
the image is bringing, is another reality, that can be freely interpreted and
further developed by all possible means outside the traditional ones.
Our small team experiments since several years in the challenging space between
the CG and the traditional media, trying to find a kind of bridge connecting ‘Graphic
and Graphics’, with the ultimate goal to convert the visual component of
the picture, in an interactive virtual installation.
Because of some technical problems, still unresolved, we are able to demonstrate
this project, only as an animation.
Just like our two previous creations (’Walk
into Fiction’ and ’Macchina dell’Arte’),
’Alice’ too, is a computer installation based on a painting. The origin
is Ivan Iliev’s ’Voyage’ (oil on wood
panel, 53/60, 1998), modelled and animated from the artist himself in 3DStudio
Max. The sound track is from Emanuel
The short film that we are presenting here is a look over a work in progress checking
only a part of the unlimited adventures, possible in the virtual world of ‘Alice’.
