IBM Art with Watson
show user profile  soontekk
Hey peeps, been ages since i showed anything but this one is a bit special.
Was contacted to create the art imagined by IBM's Watson supercomputer for an exhibit in NYC

Basically i had to model and animate several bananas that respond to movement during the exhibit.
If you are in New York please go have a look, take some pics and let me know what you think!

Thx Nik. Watson is IBM supercomputer able of some level of AI.
They started a project where they analyse people from the past and discover deeper parts of their personality. With that newly found data they asked artists to portray the character feats for an exhebition.
Ours was Josephine Baker well known for her banana dress so banana's it was.
Hence i had to animate several bananas showing her inner fears and dreams.
Some bananas turned out furry, others open endlessly, where another turns into a music box with a german shepherd instead of a ballerina etc.

The biggest hurdle to take was the very (very) short time frame (1 week) to pull this off.

Video Here, check meh bananas
