Digital Art Out West

Iain Anderson, Training Brisbane Part of CW18

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to travel to Blackall, to help the community with some digital art projects. I created a 360° photo trail that runs through the main street, and an iPad app as part of an exhibition in a local gallery.

This practical talk will show you how you it was all created:

  • handling the 360° camera
  • processing 360° HDR photos
  • collecting and processing video interviews
  • creating a user interface to link a real-world photo wall to the videos
  • implementing the app in Tumult Hype
  • packaging the HTML output in Xcode as an app

With the techniques discussed here, you could create similar projects to help preserve and showcase your own community’s work.
