AI + Dance + Avatars: Lecture & workshop

Visual Arena, Gothenburg, Sweden

The use of Avatars has never been greater. Games, artistic experiences and meeting platforms use them to represent us, humans. But what about how they move? Explore how AI can help by taking part in world-leading scientific research in this workshop on the 23 of February.

Welcome to another session of the XR Lab at Visual Arena. Simon Alexanderson is a researcher from KTH Royal Institute of Technology who works in the fields of generative AI, motion capture and animation. His work, published e.g. at the renowned SIGGRAPH conference, involves creating machine learning algorithms to synthesize human-like motion from huge sets of recordings of dancers and actors. The outcome is a form of directable avatars that can be controlled with high-level directives.

In collaboration with Esther Ericsson, a freelance 3D artist with a wide pallet of expertise in 3D scanning, modelling and animation for film and art, they have created the installation Dance of the Sleeping Beauties that premiered at the Museum of Performing Arts in Stockholm. Through 3D scanning, puppets, AI and motion capture, the installation explores new aspects of the long human effort of creating the illusion of life. 

On the 23rd of February, they will join us and give a lecture and host a workshop on how to create a simple avatar using photogrammetry techniques. They will teach you how to make your own avatar, so bring your phone (preferably iPhone 10 and up) and you will get tips on how to easily create a 3D model by taking lots of pictures.

Bring something you want to scan, save for the future or see in AR.

This event is done by Narrative XR Lab

The project Narrative XR Lab is done by Visual Arena at Lindholmen Science Park in collaboration with Gothenburg Film Studios, FilmCloudRISE,  Kulturförvaltningen, Västra Götalandsregionen and Film&TV vid Lindholmen Science Park

This venture is possible thanks to support from Västra Götalandsregionens kulturnämnd


13:00 - 15:00 Lecture on AI + Dance + Avatars

15:00 - 17: 00 Workshop on 3D scanning and avatar making  

Generative AI is posing new questions about artistry and authenticity. Come join us, dive into the future and explore these burning topics.
