The Next Chapter 2019
Cushman & Wakefield
Cushman & Wakefield’s APAC Leadership conference activation.
The evolution of our VIVID 2019 Tumbalong Lights “See What I See” activation.
This event activation invites all attendees, who are C&W APAC leaders to create their own Digby Webster’s artwork .
Digby is a widely exhibited, Sydney-based visual artist, his canvases burst with vibrant colours whether they are abstracts, portraits or landscapes. Digby’s perception of the world around him is fascinating. See What I See is an interactive installation that gives visitors a chance to experience the way Digby sees us. Stand in front of the frame and see yourself mirrored through advanced facial recognition technology that interprets your features and expressions into a morphing vision of colour and light that is uniquely Digby in style.
How did we do it?
The brief was to create an event activation where all the event attendees can participate and create a talking point.
We have to reuse the “See What I See” activation we’ve done with Digby Webster, as he is also involved in creating the event take away, Digby’s artwork printed laptop bag.
Our solution was to create a smaller version of the activation, using the same tech and setup, where we would capture each artwork created to be matched with the participant’s profile picture on a larger screen.
We’re using Microsoft Kinect V2.0 as the tracking camera, and utilising its face tracking feature to control Digby artwork. We’ve scanned his hand drawn artworks and separate its facial features to create a randomly generated faces for users.
Combined with the unique backgrounds, the experience creates endless combinations and unique face digital painting for each user.
