ReForm | Hollywood’s Creating Digital Clones
In the premiere of our ReForm series, we explore the frontier of the 3D face- and body scanning technology used to create digital doubles for films, video games, and holograms. We meet some of the scanned humans, their avatars, and get to understand the challenges the Institute For Creative Technologies has had to overcome in their quest to create a photo-realistic virtual person, including the conquering of the Uncanny Valley.

In the second episode of ReForm, we look at how big data and art have converged into a new visual culture. Six major data artists (Mark Hansen, R Luke DuBois, Kate Crawford, Jer Thorp, Fernanda Viegas, and Martin Wattenberg) discuss what it means to make art in the 21st century and how quantification and digitisation is completely changing the way we live and create.

    But, but, but. Gigatown.

    I think that’s a bit unfair, there is great tech stuff being done in Dunedin – way more than most people think – it’s just that we’re a small town so there’s proportionally not as much.- did you know there’s a company that makes a good living selling nothing more than virtual butterflies? 3 different companies that sell GPS equipment?

    What you’re not going to see is lots of these flashy Hollywood things, because, well, we’re not in Hollywood, and that’s where the money for that sort of things is to be found.

    Gigatown is a red herring, people who really need that bandwidth have already located downtown where that’s been available for years.

    There are lots of people in Dunedin who work in IT from home, it will help some of them, but plain fibre will help just as much – the old guard tartan mafia CoC mob don’t much care for them because they no reason to have anything to do with it – they don’t rent expensive real-estate down town, they don’t fit in, they wear bathrobes and tee-shirts, not suits.
