The Mirror of Transfiguration [Lisbon]

Mayuko Kanazawa, Masataka Imura, and Ichiroh Kanaya presented The Mirror of Transfiguration at ACM ACE conference in Lisbon.

The Mirror of Transfiguration is an interactive media-art for showing native Canadians’ spiritual image to children. It immerses its viewers into pictures of Canadian nature, and the viewers will transform into ones of the spiritual animals of Canadian tradition. Various image processing and mixed reality technologies are used to set up this installation, including posture recognition, synthesis of hand-drawn animation and real images, and natural image morphing.
