GoSee loves ... INORI (Prayer) das neue Super High Speed Face Mapping Video mit dem Dance-Duo AyaBambi von Creative und Technical Director Nobumichi Asai

Nachdem er bereits Lady Gaga während ihres Auftritts auf den Grammys 2016 zu Ehren David Bowies mit Hilfe von Face Mapping ein virtuelles Make-up applizierte,  präsentieren wir Euch hier bei GoSee das neue Werk von Creative Director und Face Mapping Virtuose Nobumichi Asai. Vor der Kamera stand das japanische Dance-Duo AyaBambi. Infos zum Video erfahrt Ihr von Nobumichi Asai anbei, das Making of zum Video könnt Ihr  Euch hier anschauen.

"This project is achieved as collaborative work between AYABAMBI,TOKYO, Ishikawa Watanabe Lab, The University of Tokyo and WOW, responding the call for collaboration by Nobumichi Asai (WOW). The latest work to utilize real time tracking and face projection mapping using a state of the art 1000 fps projector and ultra high speed sensing, “INORI-prayer-,“ has been released.  This project began when songs were created about ‘life,’ a theme proposed by Tanigawa, who acted as this project’s director. Creative and technical director Asai (WOW) and CG director Shingo Abe (WOW) completed visual production and programming based on inspiration they obtained from the songs. Aya Sato added the choreography, and TOKYO, led by Taniguchi, completed the project by making it into a video.

‘Radioactive’ is the inspiration that Asai felt from music. ‘Radioactive’ wields destructive power, and from that brings ‘death’, ‘suffering’, and ‘sadness"’. And then, the ‘opportunity’ to overcome those things. Accompanied by the overwhelming performance of AyaBambi, a visual synchronization of black tears, skulls, faces being severed, Noh Masks of agony and the Heart Sutra have sublimated into a single piece of work. The face mapping system made it possible to follow intense performances, which was impossible until now, thanks to the use of the state of the art 1000 fps projector DynaFlash and ultra high speed sensing. The initial dilemma of speeding up the tracking to the detriment of performance latitude was resolved by the WOW team, Professor Watanabe, and Tomoaki Teshima (EXVISION), who trimmed several milliseconds during a trial and error period that lasted approximately three months, enabling the completion of this system. The projected image looks like it is integrated into part of the skin, and the expressions on a subject’s face, when it is distorted or transformed, are exponentially enhanced."

Nobumichi Asai graduated from Department of Science, Tohoku University. Currently belongs to WOW Inc. Creative/Technical Director/Media Artist. He is globally acclaimed with face mapping for Lady Gaga at the Grammys 2016, “Connected Colors” for Intel’s global campaign, the laser hologram “Light of Birth” exhibited at La Triennale di Milano and “Ghost in the Shell Virtual Reality Diver”. He≠ has led the field of projection mapping both nationally and internationally introducing “OMOTE” and SMAP’s “FACE-HACKING”. He is also invited to media art festivals over the world as a keynote speaker and a judge. His works challenge innovative visual arts by bringing advertisement, design and both ideas of art and programming together. Received Jury Selection in Japan Media Arts Festival, Grand Prize in VFX AWARD 2015, Honorary Mention, Computer Animation/Film/VFX Award in Ars Electronica and many other awards.

Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor passes by and reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls’ family. The family overreacts, removing all “instruments of corruption,” like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives in Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s debut, a powerful portrait of female empowerment.

A matter of perspective .... der Film zur Richtung der aktuellen Europäischen Flüchtlingsthematik von Amnesty International auf GoSee

Was wenn es einen selber trifft? AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL dreht den Spiess um und lässt Europäer in Form von einer deutschen Mutter und ihrem Sohn um ihr Leben laufen. Der Film soll helfen sich in andere Menschen einzufühlen, sich aus Mitleid solidarisch zu zeigen. Ein edles Motiv. Doch ebenso wichtig ist die Tatsache, dass Deutschland, Europa, die Welt noch nie ohne Support aus anderen Genpools auskam - und wenn dann doch einmal ein in sich geschlossenes System existierte - ging es nicht lange gut.

Dies ist nicht die erste Wanderung, wir sind nicht die ersten Menschen, dies ist nicht unser Land. Wir wohnen hier, wir haben Glück. Und wir haben Glück, dass wir tolle Menschen kennenlernen dürfen, die unter grossen Mühen den Weg in unser Land gefunden haben, das tolle Gene in Körper, Geist und Seele vor unseren weit geöffneten Türen stehen. Wir wollen ein buntes Europa. Und gerne ein superbuntes Deutschland, das voran geht. Und genau dies ist die Grundstimmung bei GoSee, in unseren Familien, bei unseren Freunden und Nachbarn. amnesty.org
