Summary

Magic Windows is a choreographic piece in augmented reality (AR), created for the renovation of the Aula des Cèdres in Lausanne, Switzerland. Through screens of mobile phones or tablets, users can see the space of the Aula des Cèdres in direct but also virtual dancers embedded in the image and disseminated on the site.

For this piece, we created the 3D bodies of the dancers using body scanning technology, and we performed the motion capture and animation of the virtual dancers.
