Clouds is a visually groundbreaking interactive and generative documentary that allows the viewer to explore creativity through the language of code. Filmed using a new 3-D cinema format called RGBD, viewers can interact with a Microsoft Xbox Kinect or an Oculus Rift to fly through a video game–like environment. Participants will join a community of luminaries who represent a new breed of interdisciplinary hacker-artists struggling to develop new forms of visual expression and new vocabularies of technology that resonate at a deeper human level.
Artists James George and Jonathan Minard will give a guided tour of Clouds at New Frontier Microcinema on Wednesday, January 22, at noon and Thursday, January 23 at Noon.
