Original Concept + Creative Director ~ Betty Sargeant
The Storytelling Machine had its debut at the Asia Culture Centre (Korea, 2016). It will be exhibited at Geelong After Dark (Australia, 5th May 2017) and an exhibition of How to Make a Storytelling Machine will be at St Kilda Library (Australia, 13-21st May 2017).
The machine instantly transforms the public's drawings into animated characters that roam the artwork's video worlds
Ultimately this artwork presents a collective story
An imprint of what it's like to live in a digitally connected culture
The Storytelling Machine randomly displays audiences' drawings & story texts, consequently each exhibition experience is unique
This machine's customised software was created in TouchDesigner
The machine generates realtime graphics across seven screens using one computer and seven HD projectors
This project involves public workshops and exhibitions
The Storytelling Machine is due to be exhibited at the Geelong After Dark Festival (Australia, 5 May 2017)
How to Make a Storytelling Machine is a digital showcase that will be featured during Betty's artist-in-residence period at the St Kilda Library (Australia, 13-21 May 2017)
