In this hand drawn animation a line is being extrapolated through a grid. When the line surpasses the boundaries of the grid, the process spreads to and reflects on its surroundings. Beyond each boundary the extrapolation of movement is causing deformation in a systematic but speculative way.

This work was created with support from ”Animation Artist in Residence Tokyo 2016” part of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan (Bunka-cho) ”Project to invite overseas creators of media arts 2016” and the Mondriaan Fund.

【360° Movie】Tokyo Light Odyssey

【360° Movie】Tokyo Light Odyssey (Full) from WOW inc on Vimeo.

About the Work
From the lights of skyscrapers and homes, to the neon street lights and headlamps of cars and trains in motion… fragments of the city float like stardust out of the darkness against the curtain of the night sky. This new vision of Tokyo is explored with omnidirectional motion graphics.

This work was born from ‘Beyond Motion Graphics’ ( http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics ) an internal company project at WOW aimed at exploring new possibilities for motion graphics. In using VR technology, consideration was given as to what kind of images to showcase and express as pieces of art.

作品について
夜のとばりに包まれた高層ビルの光、街頭のネオン、電車や道行く車のヘッドライトから家々が湛える暮らしの灯りまで、暗闇から現れる星屑のような街の断片を浮遊しながら、東京という都市の新たなビジョンへと至る、全天球型のモーショングラフィックス。

本作は、モーショングラフィックスの新たな可能性を問うWOWの社内プロジェクト「Beyond Motion Graphics」( http://wowlab.net/research/beyond-motiongraphics )から誕生。VRの技術的側面に加え、それによって切り拓かれるべき映像=アートとしての表現性に注目した。

World’s First ROBOT Wedding: Frois and Yukirin tied the knot and even ends with a kiss in Japan

Two robots have tied the knot in Japan in what is thought to be the first wedding of its kind in the world.

Frois, the groom, and bride Yukirin walked the aisle, wore traditional outfits and even carried out a ‘wedding kiss’ at the event in Tokyo on Saturday.

Special invitations were made, featuring a picture of the two robots inset in a heart, and the 100-strong congregation included a range of smaller robotic models.

After the ceremony the couple even managed to ‘cut a cake’ before an automated orchestra performed a song for the equivalent of their first dance.

The event was organised by Maywa Denki, which produces electronic accessories and designed the groom Frois.

Marrying the robotic couple was likewise a robot – Pepper, who was developed by Aldebaran for Softbank. It actually tends to customers’ needs on a daily basis at the company’s mobile phone stores in Tokyo.

Frois’s head is said to have been inspired by a bath stool, while there are considerably more sensible claims to fame by Yukirin, whose real version can be seen fronting the famous girl band AKB48. For the wedding, and possibly, for copyright reasons, the organizers had to change her name to Roborin.

A crowd gathered to watch the pair stroll down the aisle at central Tokyo’s Aoyama Cay on June 27. They had to dish out $81 for the pleasure of witnessing the ‘holy union.’
