Let your shadow tell your story

Coming June, Science Centre Singapore will be bringing to you Interplay – Where Science meets Arts, a temporary exhibition featuring 19 amazing exhibits.

Check out Shadowgram, a fun and engaging exhibit which you will probably find hard to pull yourself away from.

So what is Shadowgram?

Developed by Ars Electronica Futurelab, it combines the aesthetic entertainment of creating a physical object, a sticker cut out in the shape of your shadow with the intention of participating in social brainstorming.
A video camera, a large illuminated panel, an image analysis software and a vinyl cutter are the key components that go into producing a silhouette of a person or an object, which is then printed out as a sticker that, together with a speech balloon, become part of a larger board or map. Visitors can pen their thoughts onto the speech balloon, and in totality portrays current trends and opinions.

According to Ars Electronica, this extension of the FabLab concept to the next stage of interactive fabrication is an important part of technical and conceptual research, one that has the potential to yield highly entertaining works.

Curious about Interplay and the rest of the 18 exhibits? Stay tuned to more news coming your way!
