Director: FARO Studio
Synopsis: FIBRA is An exploration of our perception of virtually created worlds through a light choreography.
In a world highly influenced by hyper-realistic CGI artworks, motion-tracking technology and procedural visual effect software, this piece challenges the perception of the viewer by creating digital looking light composition with an analogue approach.
Inspired by the suits used in motion capture (Animac – 1968), a costume made out of over 500 tails of low-tech fibre optic paints dots of light resembling digitally created images
