A recent article by Iain Borden
of urban life: Skateboarding and socio-spacial censorship in the late
century city" has inspired me to design an animated
Virtual Reality Model of a
young scateboarder doing a 'Nose Slide'.
The file has been used to produce a computer-cut and folded cardboard version
of the shirt and trousers as part of the
Folded Bodies Project.
The stick figure will slowly get up from its position on knees and
hands. Uses coordinate interpolation: file size 4K .
Five stick figures drop to the floor and do push-ups at different
speeds. Rotate the whole scene so you see the 5 stick-figures through the
semi-transparent floor and it looks as if they were trying to break out of
something. Uses coordinate interpolation and a random interpolation script:
file size 16K .
As soon as the browser is activated a 'START' button appears which
unfolds a large segment from a rectilinear block into a
potential backdrop scenery. Uses position and orientation interpolation and an
file size 17K .
A stick figure topples a rectilinear block shape and unfolds
it on the floor. Uses position, orientation and coordinate interpolation,
sound effects and an animated viewpoint:
file size 17K , sound files 9K and 30K.
A rectilinear block shape has a sculpturally shaped segment pushed
out by a figure. The camera zooms in and enters through the resulting opening.
Inside the irregular geometry the movement is towards a rostra. After a while
the stick figure appears, topples a side wall and pushes it away. The browser
controls appear for the viewers own exploration. Uses position, orientation and
coordinate interpolation, sound effects and an animated viewpoint:
file size 25K , sound files 9K and 30K.
