The process is very simple: visitors are invited to draw on a DIN A4 paper within the outline of a simplified human body. The drawing is placed into the ‘magic box’ that acts like a scanner. The picture is transformed into a living interactive projection, that the visitors can animate with their bodies. The reaction of the newborn creature to one’s body movements creates a funny atmosphere of dance and play.
How Does It Work?
BadaBodyPaint is the magic tool to give life and play with your imagination. A collective installation that involves any age group with its mix of creativity, movement and surprise.
In the previous Workshops and Festivals we collected more than 5000 drawings, coming up with a large character library developed by every kind of people. Kids, teenagers, grandparents and whole families decided to get into play, creating a living, diverse environment around the tables.
BadaBodyPaint can be used to spice up an illustration fair, as well as comic / anime convention.
Imagine young illustrators painting in their template intricate figures, and then be able to bring them to life.
Or during a fair, in a waiting area, after visiting many stands, find a place to relax where at the same time kids can still express their energy and movement ..and maybe be joined by their parents!
