Semi Permanent, an Australian design platform, released two videos regarding their newest project today. Called Collaboration, it challenged four artists from, wildly different fields to create a single work in Google’s Tilt Brush.
Graphic designer Luke Lucas, Australian Ballet soloist Sharni Spencer, painter and illustrator James Jean, and Kelvin of the architecture and design firm Akin Creative all contributed to the project. The result is a beautiful 3D ‘sculpture’ featuring otherworldly wildlife near a pink gazebo overgrown with psychedelic fauna.
“In the very beginning, Sharni created the bones for a horse character that evolved from the movements she made. Then along the way, her movements became these nests of activity, and I would go in and tease out images and new ideas – branches would evolve and erupt from these nests that Sharni created. It all evolved very naturally,” says Jean.
The final products, or at least the ones available on the internet include a 360-degree video showcasing the work’s creation, and a making of featurette. Both are embedded below.
Collaboration is yet more evidence of the power and versatility of Tilt Brush. Beyond providing fodder for late-night comedians, the VR tool has been used to create models in Unity, prototype levels for other VR projects, and of course, it’s been a favorite tool of artists since its launch last year.
What do you think of Collaboration, and how does it stack up to the ever growing field of Tilt Brush-art?
