Beautiful Beasts
A digital generative storytelling

Ter afsluiting van haar residentie met Rudi Giot, Lucille Calmel, & MARC (Limsi-cnrs) zal Pascale Barret een nieuwe work-in-progressversie tonen van haar project Beautiful Beasts. Dit project ging van start bij iMAL tijdens het Arts/Science-onderzoeksproject VIRAGE. Tijdens deze presentatie zal het publiek het dispositief en de ergonomische interactie kunnen uittesten met de performers door het creëren van verschillende mogelijke scenario’s.

Deze project wordt geselecteerd voor Banff Digital Media Institute program: Interactive Screen 1.0 : Beautiful Lives (2010) en voorgesteld tijdens KISS2011, Kyma International Sound Symposium in Porto (2011).

About Beautiful Beasts

In the Love Story of the Beauty and the Beast, I can imagine how the Beauty has been disappointed when the Beast became Prince. She devoted so much time to love the animal.
I suppose she asked for another Beast, so ugly, so special. Thus, I created another protagonist, used by the Beauty to control the Beast... who becomes a Beauty, maybe the Beauty would turn into a Beast, and the Teddy change into a Prince ?... 

Mixed Realities

The story will be randomly repeated or removed, for each performance. By manipulating Teddy, Pascale will interact in a flexible time generative scenario on soundscapes and voice, a poetic chat Bot, the emotional expressions of MARC, his body IDLE, movements and camera's parameters around him. The audience will take part in the drama by playing RFID cards.
